This is the second Leysieffer bar I have sampled, and it couldn’t be more of a contrast to the previous (Dark chocolate and Elderflower) bar I tried a while back. Many thanks to my little helper who selected these two for me, despite not knowing what was in them.
As you now know from watching Dr. Kiki’s video lecture on chocolate, white chocolate is made without cocoa liquor, making it sweeter, softer and (to my mind) a little blander, so the thought of an additional spicy cinnamon kick cheered me up a little.
However, when it came to the crunch I was left thinking that actually a little crunch might have been a good idea.
The cinnamon flavour was there but in a very subtle way, so that the overall taste was, once again, good old bland white chocolate. Notes of cinnamon were apparent when I sniffed it and when it first hit my tongue, but they never really developed into anything stronger than a hint, and that just made the overall experience just a little too soft and creamy for my liking.
Compared to the mouthwatering loveliness of the Elderflower bar this is a very poor second in my opinion. Of course, someone who loves white chocolate would probably beg to differ, but as a lover of the darker tastes I continue to find that white chocolate lacks that certain ‘oomf’ that only comes with a good dose of cocoa solids.
