Review: Chocolove Cherries & Almonds in Dark Chocolate Bar
This would have been a great Valentine's post (they actually have a love poem inside the wrapper), but we should feel "Chocolove" all year round. We love the Chocolove line in general, but this bar is exceptional. When something is really good, my dad likes to say "That'll make you want to throw your hat in the lake." Truer words were never said about this bar.
The dried Michigan cherries aren't overly sweet, and they are unquestionably natural tasting - no cherry flavoring here. And the chunks are nice and chewy. The California almond nibs are dry-roasted and add a little crunch and a subtle saltiness. And of course the smooth, complex 55% dark chocolate. The chewy, crunchy combination of cherries and almonds provides a delicious flavor contrast initially, then gradually blends with the rich, complex flavor of dark chocolate. The bar measures 6" x 3".
Get some Chocolove for yourself.
