Turkish Delights: Ulker Laviva Candy Bar
The Ulker Laviva candy bar from Turkey is packaged in an understated elegant wrapper. Inside, though, the candy bar is anything but delicate or sedate. This slim stick is comprised of a crunchy chocolate cookie (the consistency of a Twix cookie, but chocolate flavor). A layer of thick chocolate frosting or fudge tops the cookie and the whole thing is enrobed in a thick layer of rich milk chocolate. The whole thing would simply be too rich, except that the chocolate cookie lightens up the combination. I really like this candy bar and can't think of a single equivalent on the American market. Therefore, we need Lavivas imported into far more American grocery stores and bodegas. Or Twix should make a new line of chocolate cookie based bars.
