A special edition bar, but there’s nothing special about it. Has a strange taste that’s not obviously orange, strange mouth-feel as well, a bit greasy. Orange after-taste (eventually).
This wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever eaten, but it’s probably in the top ten. Awful flavour combination, terrible texture combination. Avoid.
I love speculoos. And there are some great chocolate bars with speculoos. This is not one of them.
Imagine a milk chocolate bar full of flavoured grit, and you’ve got this bar.
Cheap and crumbly. Not particularly smooth, not particularly flavourful – best avoided.
Waitrose describe it as ‘Perfect for baking or enjoying on its own’ – so it’s repackaged baking chocolate.
Perfectly competent and fairly reasonably priced. Hazelnuts aren’t broken up which is a big bonus. Very little after-taste.
How’s that for a somewhat underwhelming review?
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.
I really thought this would be better than Lindt’s Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts, which I really wasn’t wild about.
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.
