What in the world have I gotten myself into? I used to believe that “candy is fun." And “treats are great.". Now, here I am starring down a bar that I can’t figure out at all. With writing I can't even decipher (I don’t read Cyrillic) and with what appears to be a cross between oranges and onions on the package. I can't wimp out, I mean, I'm sure I've had worse. Although the idea of eating an orange/onion chocolate bar sounds about as bad as it gets. I've gone to the depths of candy hell and survived, but there's something about the unknown that can still send a chill up my spine. I’ve wasted enough time stalling, so here goes.
Hmmm, this is a tough one. I'm not sure if I like it or hate it, and to be honest I'm not really sure what it is. Describing a candy bar and writing a review is so much easier when you can read the package; it tells me what to expect and often eliminates any confusion I might have after tasting it. I’ll start with the basics, it's covered in a dark, slightly fruity chocolate. It seems to have a brown centre that's a little nougat-like but also a little gritty. Hey, I think I just bit a nut! Yes, I did. I think it might be a hazel nut but I can't be certain. The bites with the nuts aren't bad, it adds a little contrast both in flavour and texture.
This bar isn't bad just not really spectacular either. The gritty nougat is a little off putting, but the rest of it is pretty standard. Fortunately I didn’t find any fake orange flavour, and very fortunately I didn’t find anything resembling onions.
