Another pick from our seemingly endless supply of Butlers bars here. We don’t often do white chocolate, but the picture on the wrapper of this one got my attention. It looked like there was a decent amount of fruit packed into it, so I though I’d risk the sugar overload and give it a go.
Open the wrapper and you’re immediately greeted by the aroma of fruit. Lots of fruit. Strawberries, primarily, but this bar also contains blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and lingonberries… yeah, I had to look that one up as well.
The fruit takes the form of tiny freeze dried pieces embedded through the bar. Lots and lots of them. And all that fruit certainly gives this bar something unique because the overwhelming flavour is that of strawberry milkshake. A really good strawberry milkshake at that.
The white chocolate is sweet of course, but not too sweet, and the fruit is the dominant flavour. Those tiny pieces become more intense as they melt in the mouth which just make the whole thing extremely moreish.
But those tiny fruit pieces are also give the bar an interesting crunchy texture. Just occasionally though, there’s a little piece that’s too hard, which is really the only thing that spoils this bar. Feeling like you’ve broken a tooth on a strawberry isn’t much fun.
That aside, this is one of the nicest white chocolates I’ve had in a long time – a fact that has more to do with the fruit and the chocolate.
