Quality 19.2 / 20
Rare rendering deviates from almost all other chocolate nut bars. Never so much exposes hazelnut as exploits it to enhance & heighten the naked flavor of Marcolini’s tremendously straight & simple Ghana cacáo; in unctuously delicate brushstrokes, achieved in part by a micro-crunch texture that acts as soft exfoliant.
