Vegan Chocolate Reviewer: Chocolove Coffee Crunch in Dark Chocolate

chocolove coffee bar

Product: Chocolove Coffee Crunch in Dark Chocolate
Price: unknown price (bought for me) for 3.2 oz at Cornucopia (local health food store)
Type of chocolate: 55% cacao chocolate from Belgium
My notes: Smooth and glossy appearance. Soft bite with pleasant crunchy coffee bits. I expected a mocha-like taste, but actual flavor was mild chocolate with an intense coffee accent. For a dark chocolate, the cacao content was low and I was reminded of a cheap candy bar, but better. Couldn’t tell if my subsequent “high” was from the coffee or chocolate.
Note to self: Coffee and chocolates alone would make an excellent brunch.
Overall rating (out of five stars): ***

Every Chocolove bar comes with a love poem printed on the inside of the wrapper. I never enjoy it as much as the chocolate.
