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.
I thought this combination of white-ish chocolate, peanuts and pretzels really wouldn’t work but I was pleasantly surprised.
Nice balance of flavours and textures.
Nice reasonably thick white chocolate bar, nice mouth feel and taste.
An extremely long lasting and strange combination of after-tastes ruins it though – part too sweet, part something else sour/bitter/unpleasant.
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.
