Some yummy chocolate bars for review today — Moonstruck Chocolate Co. is probably best known for their fancy truffles and "Cream Cones" but they also makes some fine chocolate bars. I was fortunate to receive a package containing three of their bars from a fellow blogger. These bars are very pretty, sporting 4 triangular sections — sort of fun. Biting off the corner of each triangle is a bit like biting off the ears of a chocolate bunny. They were shiney, well tempered and all had a nice snap to them.
Moon struck Dark Chocolate Bar — A nice sweet, mild dark chocolate. So mild in fact, that my 6 year old, after trying some, begged me for more! I didn’t notice any specific flavors that stood out — the taste was pure chocolate for me.
Moonstruck Dark Chocolate with Chile Variado — Very nice bar! The first taste is chocolate — sweet and dark. After the chocolate melts a bit, the heat comes up and makes you want to take another bite of the sweet chocolate. This is how I like a spicey bar to be — the heat wasn’t overwhelming.
Moonstruck Dark Chocolate Espresso Bean Bar — This was my favorite and was finished off before the others. The earthy, bitterness of the coffee beans mixed nicely with the sweet, mild chocolate. This is what I like a chocolate / coffee bar to be! Yum!
Thank you Adina for introducing me to these wonderful chocolate bars! After doing some research, I see that they actually have a shop in Chicago and even one at my Alma Mater — U of I in Champaign, IL (of all places!) You can also find Moonstruck at other shops throughout the country.
