Dove Chocolate is great, so no matter what new flavor variety the company releases, you know that the base chocolate layer will taste good. Pink champagne is a cool flavor idea to roll out for Valentine's Day. I like the idea of it as champagne and chocolate are certainly a tasty duo. (I'll come clean and say that I've never had pink champagne and am unsure of the specific flavor). With the knowledge of the desired flavoring I could really taste an essence of aromatic champagne mixed into the chocolate. My tastebuds could make that leap. If I hadn't known that Pink Champagne was the mix-in flavor, I never would have guessed. The chocolate tasted somewhat floral and if pressed, I might have guessed Banana. A far cry from Pink Champagne. So on one hand this experiment proves the strength of suggestion--if told it tastes like Pink Champagne I think it does. When left to my own devices, I veered more toward banana. Even if the flavor is hard to pin down, it's pretty tasty. I would certainly hand these out to colleagues and loved ones alike to celebrate the Valentine's Day Candy Season.
