Review: Russell Stover Internationale - German Black Forest Truffle

russell stovers.jpgRussell Stover Internationale is doing an interesting thing to compete in the "gourmet" chocolate market. It strives to take consumers to different areas around the world to sample the different chocolate tastes. So we tried the German Black Forest Truffle.

To be honest, it was surprisingly good. We hadn't set the bar too terribly high - nothing against Russell Stover. The bar is thin, divided into eight smaller pieces, which makes for easy eating. The dark truffle inside has a hint of cherry, and a very nice texture. Apparently, there is both dark and milk chocolate enrobing the truffle, which I didn't know until I read the package because I didn't taste the milk chocolate. Nice idea, but the subtlety was missed.

I think this bar would make more of an overall impact if it were a little thicker. Because it is so thin, there is naturally less truffle. This left me wanting more, and didn't give the texture contrast its just due. Also, if you're going to put a chocolate cake with white frosting on the package, wouldn't it make more sense to use white chocolate on the candy bar?
