Meet Margot. Margot comes from Slovenia, and to look at her you’d think she was a chocolate bar, but Margot has a little secret. Margot is actually a soya bar with coconut ‘coated with dark compound’. Not so appetising now, is she?
The taste of this bar is actually quite strange. It has a sweet, almost fermented taste to it. Not quite ‘year old pot of jam’ fermented, but a definite hint of that alcohol-like flavour. Probably something to do with the way the soya is processed to produce the finished product.
I suppose if you were someone with food allergies or an aversion to real chocolate (and a love of sugar) then this might be the bar for you, but it doesn’t make much sense to me to sell this alongside ‘proper’ chocolate products. It’s, well, odd.
Odd, sweet and something I shall avoid in future.
