Of course the packaging is just as beautiful as ever and the bar itself has some delightful artwork formed in the mould, but it’s the flavour that’s the most gratifying. There’s nothing that will really hit your taste buds, it just offers a flavourful warm blanket of satisfaction. These flavours are very much like the combination of flavours offered by a Bakewell Tart – it’s that cherry and almond hit that I really do love. But there’s a very slight sensation of pepper at the very tip of your tongue near the end of the melt.
Some may feel that it’s not ‘man enough’ as there’s no striking characteristics – it’s just very pleasant, but I don’t feel that every bar of chocolate should offer the same sort of bitter intensity. Chocolate as mellow and as sweet as this certainly has its place – and I can most certainly see this on my chocolate shelf again sometime soon.
