After a good start, this bar disintegrates into anti-matter faster than pulling on a loose thread only to quickly discover that the whole shirt has unraveled.

vanilla toffee & Canadian Oka cheese (nut paste & mild caulk)
Mouthfeel   7.5 / 15
Texture: porn storm: plastic wax / extreme breast-enhancement sends eaters on a fools errand to...
Melt: ... slippery sliding
Flavor   33.2 / 50
vanilla malt -> good MC hit / nice cocoa edge -> peanut -> then the wax is on... & the savor disappears beneath waves of pure steam-cleaned cocoa butter to grease the skids where it’s all downhill from there in a tumbrel to... not quite the kiss of death, just a flat bland finish into a malted bed of hay
Quality   10.8 / 20
How to turn 8 into 48 (percentage of cacáo-content, that is): a fat magic act... as in honest-to-goodness fat / cocoa butter makes for a pussycat of a “Dark-Milk”, just buttered into obesity & oblivion (NOTE: the best way to lose weight is to consume fewer calories).

What Askinosie’s El Rustico is to Dark, this is to Milk Choc – both are really vanilla bars in disguise.

If Choklat would just let it rip BUT ONCE ('oh please purrty please'), let its guard down & remove the vanilla-butter mask to show how it interprets chocolate according to its own personal pleasure principles, instead of always playing to market LCDs with focus group-tested product, there might be something to discuss here.

Then again, money's more important than discussion.

A let-down of a blob considering that this Brazilian bean seems to have qualities worth revealing.
