Delish Dark & Twisted Dark Chocolate with Lemon & Black Pepper
Wow! I didn't have high hopes for the Walgreens line of Delish candies and chocolates. I figured that the fact that the line is so inexpensive would mean waxy cheap chocolate. I was surprised, however, with the nice Belgian chocolate employed- no Jacques Torres but pretty tasty. And I'm super impressed with some of these unique and experimental chocolate bar flavors- these are not your average "drugstore fare"! The Delish Dark & Twisted Lemon & Black Pepper Dark Chocolate bar is not my favorite combination. Lemon oil is infused throughout the chocolate, endowing an acidic citrus zing to each bite. In addition, little crunchy bits of pepper break through as the chocolate melts. I'm not big on pepper on any food so I cannot adequately judge the flavor balance here. To my mind, the less pepper the better in any situation. So overall I didn't love it. But I did love getting to have a new chocolate flavored adventure for very little money. I look forward to trying this entire line of chocolate bars, especially the Dark & Sinful Pear & Almond Dark Chocolate bar...mmmm....
