Ulker Albeni Chocolate Bar



One might expect Ulker's Albeni bar to taste indistinguishable from a Twix as on paper their composition is the same- cookie base topped with a layer of rich caramel all covered in a thick layer of chocolate to keep the whole thing adhered. But no. This Albeni chocolate bar puts the classic Twix to shame. The cookie in a Twix bar has no real flavor and a super airy crumbly consistency. The cookie base of an Albeni bar, however, actually tastes like a traditional shortbread, something one might actually want to eat by itself without the embellishment of caramel and chocolate. This is a substantial dunking cookie! The caramel is the strongest element of the Albeni bar. Again, this caramel simply tastes more homemade, less pure sugar and more buttery and creamy. I consumed this bar over a week ago and haven't stopped thinking about that caramel since. The chocolate of the Albeni is comparable to the Twix, very milky and melty, not the best chocolate in the world but I'd never say no to it. I have no idea where to procure more of these, but mark my words that I'll be searching!

  4. Bought a 10 pack (or was it 12) at World Market here in the US for something crazy inexpensive, like $3 to $4 USD. Very good stuff.
