A friend gifted me with this pretty, knowing my adoration for chocolate. I don’t think I had ever had it before, so the first thing I noticed was the pink. I can’t help but admire what a gentle, yet royal shade it is.
I’ll admit, I have a nostalgic fondness for Ghirardelli. I’m not sure that they ever come up with any terribly new and exciting ieas, but they always seem safe and nice. This chocolate has one of those sweet/dark smells. The raspberry filling is very sweet, but is tempered by the chocolate. It has a slight milky creaminess reminiscent of a cherry cordial.
Oftentimes, so much sweetness turns out to be a bad thing. But here, it’s fine. Plus, Ghirardelli doesn’t call it by ridiculous, off-the-mark names, and I appreciate that. It’s simply a nice little raspberry square to treat yourself with.
