Here’s the third and final IKEA bar — Dark Chocolate. As you can see, it is dark and shiny — very nicely tempered. This is my favorite of the IKEA bars by far.
There isn’t a strong aroma on opening the package — just a mild chocolate smell. The pieces break apart with a nice snap. Upon putting the chocolate on your tongue, it begins to melt quickly — a bit dry at first, a very slight graininess. The flavor is rich and fudgie — sweet and plain. While there isn’t fruitiness, or spiciness — no overwhelming flavors other than chocolate — it is still quite nice. At the finish there is a hint of coffee, or roasted nuts.
I would definitely pick up this bar again — at only $2 it is a deal.
