IKEA Milk Chocolate

Ikea_chocolate_bars

While at IKEA a few weeks ago I was in the food section picking up some delicious lingonberries and other Swedish goodies when I spotted huge stacks of boxes filled with chocolate bars.  At $2 each, they appeared to be a deal (like most everything at IKEA) so I picked up one of each variety.

Today I tried the milk chocolate which was packaged -- as are all the bars -- in a shiny plastic wrapper -- minimal and economical.  At first look, the bar is good looking but not fancy -- the temper is nothing spectacular, but it is milk chocolate.  The smell is overwhelmingly of peanuts.  Peanuts?  I flipped over the package and read the ingredients -- no peanuts here, but there is real cocoa butter, thank goodness.

I popped a section in my mouth. . . the initial taste was of -- you guessed it -- peanuts.  The mouthfeel was thick and a bit grainy.  As it began to melt, I got a hit of saltiness and a touch of brightness.

All in all, this is a decent bar for the price you are paying, but nothing exciting.  Better than most cheap chocolate, but not good chocolate by a long shot.

More IKEA chocolate coming up . . .
