don't think I'm a chocolate snob. I appreciate good quality
chocolate but I also appreciate lesser chocolate in the right
circumstances. I look for quality in chocolate when it's either
promised to me, or when I pay a lot of money for it. This bar
is a bit of a conundrum though. The package never really promises
a high quality chocolate, unless the word "DeLux"
counts. I also didn't buy this bar, it was sent to me, so I
don't know how much it costs. The thing is for some reason I
was expecting a really high quality chocolate, maybe it was
the gold foil on the package.
After all of that,
I can't really say that this chocolate was that spectacular.
It wasn't bad, but it didn't blow me away with its quality either.
It had a nice fruity and nutty flavour, and a decent snap, but
it didn't melt in my mouth as nicely as other chocolates I've
eaten. It appears that this bar may have been stored improperly
for a short time, although that could have happened during shipping.
It was a little white on the top and bottom. That may have effected
the texture a bit, but I still think it wouldn't have been perfect
if not for the storage issue.
This bar is fine,
it's got a nice fruity/bitter flavour that you look for in a
dark chocolate bar. The texture when melting in my mouth could
have been a little smoother. It's not a bar I would ever seek
out (except for the cool package) but I was happy enough to
