Russell Stover Dark Chocolate Pecan Delight Valentine Heart



All of the elements of the Valentine's Day Edition of Russell Stover's Dark Chocolate Pecan Delight Heart should work but unfortunately they're all a tiny bit off. The caramel patty is substantive and delicious. The dark chocolate off-sets the the caramel nicely and tastes a bit more sumptuous and decadent than milk chocolate. Perhaps the problem is in the pecans. rather than suspending them in the caramel, where they could blend with each bite, they are combined with the chocolate exterior. With each bite they separate away from the caramel, creating a sensory divide. Additionally--not to be too picky--the heart shape is a bit lumpy and awkward. If the pecans were combined with the central caramel, the heart might take a more viable shape.

Score: (disappointed) 2
