Cafe-Tasse Noir Amandes is a Belgian dark chocolate bar with Almonds -- the almonds appear to be chopped or crushed, rather than whole. I really enjoyed this bar! I'm a fan of Belgian chocolate and while I do get excited by some of the fancy new combinations with wild spices or some of the uniquely flavored single origin chocolates that are available today, there are times when I want a comfortable bar. This is it. The chocolate was neither sweet nor bitter -- a nice dark bar that you could really sit down and enjoy. When I saw that the almonds weren't whole, I thought I would be disappointed, but they were really well suited to the texture of the chocolate and in the end I didn't miss the crunch I was originally hoping for.
One nice thing about the Cafe-Tasse bars -- if you get the big flat one like I got, is that they are not broken off into squares, but rather into long skinny bars -- perfect for dipping into coffee! Ah -- hence the name, I suppose. At any rate, this chocolate is even better warm & melty.
Yesterday Pete, Maddie & I went on a little shopping trip and I'm happy to say that I am all stocked up on chocolate for a while:
Actually two things pictured are biscuits -- so we can't count those, can we? And the Hello Kitty thing is Maddie's (it's one of those Yan Yan things where you dip the biscuit in chocolate -- like diy pocky). Oh and the CurlyWurly was Pete and Maddie's -- they ate it last night and it's an old fashioned Marathon Bar, repackaged! Remember those? The chocolate covered caramel braid? So anyway, that's only seven candy bars for me :) I'll give you a full report as I work my way through them. Maddie promised to help me out!
