Dark chocolate with chocolate mousse and cherry and chili fillings.


I didn’t like this one, either.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to throw it out; it’s chocolate.  I’d be hard-pressed to throw out Hershey’s kisses, come to that, and I think they had to change the legal definition of chocolate to get those things to count as chocolate.

The syrupy cherry filling inside the chocolate bar is so freaking sweet that it turns my stomach.  It doesn’t really taste like cherries (not even cheap chocolate-covered cherries) or chili (although I can pick up a tiny, bitter aftertaste) so much as just plain sugar.

The chocolate itself isn’t bad, but it’s not anything to write home about, and I can barely taste it.  “Dark” is about the best I can describe it, because the filling just drowns out everything else.

It strikes me as the kind of thing a European chocolatier would think Americans would like – exotic sounding, but no real exotic flavor to it, with Extra Sugar.  Bleah.
