I really wanted to like the Santa Cruz Chameleon… but I didn’t.
It’s light, really stiff, and climbs really well (on tarmac or manicured trail/path). Going downhill was a different story – it was super skittish and the rear end *never* stayed down – felt like I was riding a pogo stick.
Imagine a giant chocolate turtle and you’ve got Hammond’s Pecan & Caramel Piggy Back. They are huge – half an inch thick, solid, and a real handful. Great taste, great balance of caramel and nuts, great to chew on.
This looks like a posh version of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It’s a huge cup with a massive amount of solid but relatively flavourless chocolate wrapped completely tasteless peanut butter. It’s so solid it’s hard to bite into. And it’s not cheap. So I don’t think I liked it.
Unfortunately, it’s not. It’s the softest dark chocolate ever (and I thought dark chocolate was usually firm, if not brittle?) and the taste is unpleasant with a not particularly nice aftertaste that I’m struggling to describe. Give it a miss.
Far too sweet and far too soft – melts almost instantly in your mouth which I find unpleasant. Short sweet after-taste. You can buy better, but unfortunately this is really the most common “premium” white chocolate bar in the UK.
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.
