12 Days of Christmas Candy, Day 6: Wild Ophelia Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark Bar
I really like the fact that Wild Ophelia brings exotic chocolate flavors to the mass market. As a little sister of the Vosges chocolate empire, you know you can expect high quality despite the low price. It's really pretty with large chunks of peppermint crystals embedded on the underbelly of the bar. And the dark chocolate has a beautiful rich flavor. That said, I think of peppermint bark as melting in one's mouth- that's a big part of the appeal- and the dark chocolate in this bar simply refused to melt and blend with the peppermint. The overall flavor was great but the consistency was a little disappointing. These Wild Ophelia bars are worth testing out, but I'd try a different flavor than the Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark.
