Texturally annoying. Never quite de-jerkifies (even after flossing with WaterPik), which interferes with delivery of undeniably big, elaborate flavor.

Flavor 42.1 / 50
coconut almond -> concord grape -> raisin -> coffee/almond gradually evokes plum; almond thoroughly distributes thru... then big coffee comeback jacknifes into crazy cherry/melon surprise -> fudge brownie; after-length burnt almond toffee
Quality 16.3 / 20
Chocolate base succeeds in complementing & balancing almonds in spite of a ramshackle melt.
