Chuao Chocolatier Pop Corn Pop ChocoPod
Biting into the Chuao Chocolatier Pop Corn Pop ChocoPod made me a little nervous. The wrapper warns that beside the already quirky combination of popcorn and chocolate there's a "surprising Pop" added into each bite. Huh? The warning refers to Pop Rocks distributed throughout the chocolate. The experience was kind of fun- the combination of pop rocks, popcorn bits, and tasty milk chocolate isn't half-bad. However, is it really what one is searching for in a chocolate bar or merely a gimmick to pull in a consumer? It's mostly gimmick. There's really no reason for the fizzing bits except the element of surprise. All in all, I enjoyed the chocopod and wouldn't turn down another. I probably wouldn't seek it out again, though.
