Chuao Chocolatier Firecracker Candy Bar

I love this Firecracker candy bar by Chuao Chocolatier! There's a lot going on but it all works. First, there's a good dark chocolate base, melty and flavorful. Suspended throughout the chocolate is a plentiful sprinkling of popping candy (unbranded Pop Rocks) and salt, not to mention a small dose of spicy chipotle. Each unfolds at its own pace. The popping candies start immediately and continue to sizzle throughout the bite; next the salt flavor emerges, counteracting with the sweet chocolate. It's not until the chocolate has almost melted away that you experience that chipotle spice on your tongue. It lingers pleasantly long after the other flavors have faded. Chipotle in a chocolate bar can go so wrong, but Chauao gets the combination just right. Add the fun of Pop Rocks, and this bar's a winner! Thanks, Joelle!
