If looks could kill…we’d all be dead cuz this is drop-dead gorgeous – inside & out (& who said beauty’s only skin-deep?). A fine piece of eye ‘n tongue candy.
Appearance 5 / 5
|Color:||deep moonrise indigo w/ umber base|
|Snap:||muffled, sharp, & inviting|
Aroma 9.3 / 10
lovely fresh raspberries
Mouthfeel 12.8 / 15
|Texture:||tremendous properties / embedded contrast: freeze-dried raspberry crisps, crunches up huge air, countered by round chocolate|
|Melt:||disintegrates rather than melts|
Flavor 43.6 / 50
a straight hotshot: acids & tannins of the raspberries cut thru hallmark Chocolove cocoa-base mix, w/out obliterating it, in a continuous & consistent thread
Quality 17.6 / 20
Deft chocolate/fruit balance; mildly complex.... stable structure. Perhaps the best Chocolove bar... period.
