If you read my review of the mint version of this bar, you’ll know I liked it, but didn’t find it particularly intense.
Well this bar has exactly the same format – a 100g bar divided into 10 large, flat squares of solid chocolate – but it has an altogether more intense flavour to it.
I think that’s mainly down to the nature of the beast. This is made with Arabica coffee – and while the label lists the coffee content as only 1%, it obviously doesnt take a lot to produce a rich, intense coffee flavour because this bar definitely delivers a real coffee hit.
The chocolate itself is exactly the same as the Mint Intense bar, except with this bar you can actually see the coffee when you bite into the chocolate. It’s not dissimilar to a granulated (instant) coffee embedded in the chocolate.
That might not sound particularly appealing, but it’s an interesting texture that melts away completely without leaving any nasty bits behind.
The overall effect works really well, and if you’re a coffee lover you should give this one a try. It’s probably the most genuine coffee ‘experience’ I’ve tasted in a bar of chocolate – right down to the caffeine hit at the end.
