Colombian Chocolate: Confiteca Shock Bar
I was excited about the concept behind this Shock Chocolate Bar from Colombia. It's a light wafer with three buttons of vanilla cream filling, all covered with chocolate. And the packaging is cool with a lightning bolt. The chocolate, however, was mock chocolate and super waxy. The filling was dried out and cracked and only filled half of each button (not as pictured on the packaging). Maybe I purchased a really old Shock bar, but there was nothing really going for this confection- flavor, texture, ingredients. I got one and a half bites in and rejected the rest. I would like to try a second bar at some point, though, just to make sure that this wasn't an issue of freshness.
