I should like this – I think – but I don’t.
I don’t think Ritter’s white chocolate is particularly nice – it’s far too crumbly and falls apart when you chew – and the crunchy roasted whole hazelnuts feel more like rice crispies in the mouth than solid nuts.
The combination of milk chocolate and hazelnuts should always work but this time it really doesn’t – and it’s the fault of both parties.
The milk chocolate is too smooth and too soft and insubstantial, and the hazelnuts are chopped into fragments, rather than whole and the have no texture and little flavour. Avoid.
Valor’s dark chocolate bar with whole almonds – I actually quite liked it.
I wasn’t sure the combination of dark chocolate and almonds would work but it does here – it needs the dark chocolate to not be too intense.
I always want to like Tony’s Chocolonely bars, but I never do.
The Chocolate and almond combination is nice, but the sea salt works against that combination and ruins the after-taste.
You start with a combination of a chocolate that’s too dark which has had too much mint flavour added, and you’re left with what feels like a never-ending unpleasantly strong mint after-taste.
Surprisingly sweet and not bitter dark chocolate bar. Doesn’t hugely taste of either lemon or cardamon – it’s all very subtle and (surprisingly) quite enjoyable with a nice slightly lemony after-taste.
A fabulous white chocolate bar, slightly caramel in taste with a nice finish. Lovely break and really solid mouth feel. Unfortunately it’s not particularly cheap, and it’s not particularly easy to find either.
Nice bar of basic white chocolate – it’s thick and chunky and has good mouth feel.
Unfortunately it’s a ‘travel exclusive’ so it’s only available in some airports and other duty-free style stores.
I thought this would be a nice combination but it’s far too sweet and the flavours are very unbalanced – sweet, sweet or sweet.
Interesting chocolate bar – full if not over-full of hazelnuts which are floating on a layer of chocolate – which makes the bar more gritty/coarse than you might expect.
