Talk about a trendy chocolate bar, and an interesting design. I am new to The Tea Room, and it reminds me of that off-the-beat, artistic type of company with a splash of hipster into the mix. But that’s besides the point, because we’re talking chocolate here! Mmm, yes chocolate. However, product packaging does always intrigued me, nonetheless.
The dark chocolate bar infused with almond caramel was a very interesting chocolate combination of flavors mellowing together. Don’t expect a caramel center, because that’s what I thought at first. Instead, this solid dark chocolate bar has flavor notes of almond and caramel that play very nicely to the 60% dark chocolate content. So, even without the oozing caramel center, there was still a great caramel flavor hitting the palate very nicely.
There is also a creamy texture, with a minor note of bitterness that hits lightly after the caramel. It really is a delightful and interesting fusion of almond, caramel and of course, dark chocolate. There’s a light richness that isn’t overwhelming, but feels balanced and melts smoothly in your mouth.
