chocolate review! Seattle Chocolates

Seattle Chocolates Truffle Bar in Cappucino Crunch: Toffee, almonds and espresso in milk chocolate
All natural
2.5 oz (70 g)

This is a smooth, lovely bar with a nice silky truffle filling. What's missing for me is the crunch. We're promised toffee, we're promised almonds, but there's precious little of either in this bar, especially with a name like Cappucino Crunch. Maybe they're going for subtle, which is ok, but you've got to balance "subtle" with "flavor." Not that this isn't a perfectly good milk chocolate bar-- it is. But I'm looking for a little more cappu in my cino, if you know what I'm saying.

By all means enjoy this bar, but just don't let it be the last word on espresso milk chocolates.
