Icelandic Candy Bar: Góa Lakkrís Dùndur Bar
The Góa Lakkrís Dùndur chocolate bar does not look appealing. One bite of the bar reveals an outer layer of tiny corn crispies suspended in milk chocolate surrounding a double-wide piece of black licorice. Not pretty. However, the combination is delicious. I don't understand why Iceland is the only country where licorice and chocolate are frequently combined in sweets- the salty licorice taste and gummy consistency perfectly offset melty and sweet milk chocolate. The rice crispies lend just enough crunch so that each bite feels layered, revealing a crunch and then the chewy licorice to extend the bite. I really enjoyed the Góa Lakkrís Dùndur Bar and wish that they were easily attainable in the U.S. Thanks, Adam!
