Vosges Black Pearl Bar: Green Ginger, Japanese Wasabi, and Black Sesame Seeds in Dark Chocolate

Oh dear, I usually love Vosges Chocolate and am a fan of their innovative and sometimes wild flavors. This Black Pearl Bar, though- despite the awesome name- is not appealing in the least. The dark chocolate base is nicely blended with a subtle taste of ginger throughout. However, wasabi and chocolate are an off-putting mix- it makes the chocolate bar taste vaguely spicy and also like it's gone a bit rotten. The black sesame seeds sneak up on you and present an odd added substance that is neither crunchy nor flavorful. Not for me; not at all

Score: 2
