Something from one of the big names in Belgian chocolate, and to my surprise a quick search of Chocablog shows that in five years none of us has had their hands on any Leonidas product (well, at least not long enough for it to have been photographed and reviewed).
This is one of a brace of 50g bars I bought in Brussels earlier this year, and chosen for the Fueilletine as much as anything else – because I happen to really enjoy the combination of slivers of crisp wafer and chocolate.
This is 30% cocoa milk chocolate, and it’s exactly what you might expect. Slightly sweet, creamy with a full bodied flavour. There are plenty of feuilletine pieces in there to provide crunch and texture. The wafer pieces are crisp and light and the chocolate is creamy, but it is definitely on the sweet side.
A look at the packaging tells me that 26g of this 50g bar is ‘sugars’, and that’s a heck of a lot of sugar by weight. I’ve become a bit of a fan of higher cocoa content milk chocolate of late, and for me there was just too much sugar and not enough of the cocoa for my liking, but if you’re a fan of ‘ordinary’ milk chocolate then you’re quite likely to enjoy this bar, but with that level of sugar I can’t help but wonder whether this qualifies as chocolate or confectionery.
