Tim doesn't like dark chocolate, and wanted to try a bar. We asked the guy in the shop for a suggestion of the best milk chocolate. He suggested Dolfin Chocolat Au Lait. He said it was Belgian milk chocolate in its purest form.
The two chocolate bars set us back $11. Expensive for two candy bars, but you have to indulge every now and then.
We barely got out to the car when I was tearing into my candy bar. Despite the 105 temps today, I just had to have a taste. We turned the air conditioning on high and dove in. I broke off a small piece of my bar and tasted it.
YUCK! I was horrified! The taste of plum completely overwhelmed the candy bar! I could barely taste the chocolate and there was absolutely no flavor of bacon. I was soooo disappointed.
Tim had a taste of his and said it was pretty good - I had a small piece and even though I'm not a huge fan of milk chocolate, I would tell it was very smooth and had a great flavor. His candy bar was the clear winner. Now that I think about it, I was kind of hesitant when he said there were plums in the candy bar, but I figured he probably know what he was talking about. It was a very sweet chocolate bar, even with the dark chocolate, but I was definitely looking for something that was a mix of sweet & salty.
We know some people who are going to Vegas in a couple of months and they said they'd be happy to bring me a bacon bar, so I guess we'll just wait. Tim didn't mind my candy bar, so he'll probably nibble on it. I would be willing to try another Zotter bar, but nothing quite this exotic. There were some with hazelnuts, pistachios, etc. that I would be willing to try. I was bummed out, though.
