Most chocoscenti sneer at the C-spot’s™ embrace of White Chocolate. They see in it a game of jacks (for kids only), played with wishbones (wishing it were Dark)... blank beans in the pod, horses having left the stable & no riding the elephants.

Beneath the fleshy Texture, this White shoves enough backbone & knuckles down the throat that even some of them will ask for dibs.
Appearance   3.8 / 5
Color: light-emerald ivory
Surface: undifferentiated
Temper: drab
Snap: squalls
Aroma   8.6 / 10
dairy rich: vanilla-cream -> graham cracker crumbs -> true to its namesake... "buerre" of the croissant variety -> popcorn butter
Mouthfeel   13.1 / 15
Texture: newborn’s bottom
Melt: oh, so slow, baby
Flavor   44.3 / 50
dumps vanilla gliding on gobs of cool frosting -> double-bounces to lemon-honey over the fence -> picking apples (cashew variety too) -> salted-butterscotch threads the needle thru eggs in the basket -> catches some fleas + talc powder-burn to drain much of the drama from the final stage
Quality   17.6 / 20
Lots of VOG (Vanilla Oak Giant) – the Guittard M.O. - which minimizes core White Chocolate headroom & reduces the feeling of sugar. Make no mistake: both exist. Yes, sweet, very sweet, but also quite a bit of under & over tones in a rare Crossover Flavor range for the White category, to satisfy all comers / marketing fronts.
