Well this is more than a bit of a mouthful.
And that’s going to be quite a tough challenge, given this is little more than a solid slab of chocolate. A very large one (500g) at that!
Make no mistake, this is a BIG slab of chocolate.
The slab has three ‘varieties’ of chocolate – milk chocolate, a caramel milk chocolate and white chocolate – marbled together to produce a rather pleasing effect.
The milk chocolate is smooth and creamy, but it’s the caramel chocolate that’s the most interesting part. As far as I can tell, it’s simply a blend of milk chocolate and caramel, but it tastes delicious. It’s similar to a Caramac bar, but more chocolatey – and obviously much higher quality.
There isn’t really enough white chocolate to get an idea of flavour, but it’s primarily there to make the bar look pretty anyway. And it does that job admirably.
If there’s a problem with the Wham Bam, it’s simply that there’s too much of it. I’ve been nibbling away at it for 3 days now and I still have over half of it left.
I don’t quite know who this is aimed at. You’d have to be a serious chocaholic to manage the whole thing. As a gift for a loved one, it certainly has the wow factor, but I’m not sure the recipient will thank you for the instant weight gain that almost certainly goes with it!
Hotel Chocolat make a whole range of these giant slabs and they all look incredibly tempting. They’re definitely worth the money but you should probably keep in mind that you’ll probably have to invest in new loose-fitting clothes if you buy more than one.
