Droste puur pastilles

Droste chocolate is a staple of Dutch culture. The pastilles come in at least 3 styles: dark, milk and half-half dark/milk. My favorite is the dark, but I'll eat any flavor anytime.
The pastilles are the perfect size for a little piece of chocolate that you might want to eat at any point during the day, and the aluminum foil packaging keep the rest fresh for the next time. Now that Droste is putting 2 rolls in a double pack, this package lasts a long time, 2 weeks or more when I eat a little at a time. Of course, when I'm reading and want a little snack, several pastilles go down very fast.
The dark chocolate is a beautiful color, and has a mild aroma that might be more associated with a lighter-colored chocolate. The taste is always perfect, nice and dark, yet not overwhelming.
Each pastille is easy to savor, melting smoothly on the tongue.
I just discovered that there are now several more flavors of Droste pastilles. Check out the Droste website for more info on flavors like Stracciatella and Orange.
