Moser-Roth Almond Orange Dark Chocolate

This bar surprises from the moment you unwrap the bar from its high quality gold paper cover. A burst of orange scent comes out of the package, and you know you're in for a treat.

This bar, like other Moser Roth chocolate bars, is packaged in a cardboard box, and the chocolate is wrapped in the above-mentioned golden paper. But the bar also comes packed with a thin sheet of corrugated cardboard, which I suspect has more to do with making the chocolate look bigger than it has to do with preventing the bar from breaking.

Anyway, it does no harm to the taste.

This bar has tiny slivers of almond accompanying the deep dark chocolate with orange bits. Actually there are also tiny bits of apple and pineapple mixed in. My guess is the pineapple, apple and orange are blended together to make the "orange" bits.

All in all, very nice. The thinness of the bar means that you can break off a whole square and enjoy it without feeling stuffed too quickly. OK, maybe you'll eat two squares.

DH thinks it's a little on the sweet side, but I think the sweetness is perfect for this good solid quality of chocolate. But he really likes it, judging by his comment, "If you get a second piece, I get a second piece," after which he snatched the bar away from me. I suspect that by the time we've watched funny videos on TV, there won't be much left.

(A moment later) Oh, man-o-man, I'm in trouble now. DH has just figured out that he didn't get to try the last Moser-Roth bar I reviewed, the Macadamia Milk chocolate. Oopsie. (Hee-hee) Win some, lose some.
