IKEA Hazelnut Chocolate

Next in the IKEA lineup is Hazelnut Chocolate.  Upon opening the wrapper, I noticed a bit of bloom on the bar — most noticeable on the bottom.  This bar smells distinctly of hazelnuts, as it should.  The chocolate is thick and sweet — much like the milk chocolate bar, but here there is more of a milkiness and intense sweetness.  There are actually crushed hazelnuts in the bar, which taste quite fresh, giving the bar a nice crunch.

I liked this quite a bit better than the plain milk chocolate and although it is a bit too sweet for me, I think it works as a desert bar.
