Way back in the mists of time (well, March 2007) I reviewed the caramel version of this bar and it turned out to be one of my all time favourites, largely due to the deliciously tasty caramel filling.
Unfortunatley, the Goplana bars disappeared from my local shop, so I never got a chance to try this coffee version of the bar. Thankfully, Chocablog reader Malgorzata Sychta sent me one in the same package as the Wedel bar.
The chocolate here is the same as the caramel bar – a 60% dark chocolate looks very glossy and tempting. It’s tasty, but quite sweet. Serious dark chocolate purists probably aren’t going to think much of it. I however, am rarely serious, and like it a lot.
The filling, however, isn’t quite as nice. Rather than tasting of real coffee, it tastes more like a cheap coffee essence. It’s by no means offensive, but it is very, very ordinary. And after having enjoyed the caramel bar so much, I was a little disappointed by that.
I can’t complain too much, though. This isn’t an expensive chocolate, and I still found myself demolishing the whole bar without thinking about it. But given the choice of this bar or its sibling, I’d go for the caramel version every time.
