Box Chocolate Review

Garrison Confection

Info Details
Country USA   (Providence, RI)
Style Mainstream      
An inch wide & an inch deep; over-hyped & uber-priced
Presentation   4.1 / 5
standard enrobed pieces plus patties, barks, & bars
Aromas   4.4 / 5
promising nuances & overtones
Textures/Melt   8 / 10
Shells: medium gauge
Centers: goes for a lot of crunch in between the smooth stuff
Flavor   33.6 / 50
out of kilter - chocolate deficit / infusion surplus
Quality   20.8 / 30
Standard subprime blueprint
Couverture: Guittard
Truffles/Assortments/Bon Bons – handsome array of possibilities (e.g., Terrine) that, w/ rare exceptions (i.e., Sur de Lago), are passable but never reach anticipated heights; many huge misses, others simply retreating
Coconut Patty - snacks for the drive north from FLA
Peanut Butter Patty and Caramel Roll - both smooth indivisible chocolate marshes
White Chocolate Lollipop – industrial spam-o-lat
Nougat Bar – Snickers for snobs
Peanut Butter Patty – Greasy’s™
Milk Chocolate Bar – way too top heavy on the cream quotient; no uplift / all sagging down-draft
Toffee Crunch – candy chips: corn malt syrup, butter brittle; good for bad PMS
Coffee Hazelnut Bar – low coffee, little hazelnut, no jazz
