While at Grizzly's Gifts gift shop in Anchorage, Alaska, I found these two bars of chocolate. They looked cute and I decided to take them home with me.
These aren't the best chocolates for review. I am going to tag them with one general grade that I think they deserve but I am not going to give them the full treatment. They are just fun chocolate from a gift shop that have awesome packaging.
The Grizzly Bar
Milk Chocolate, 3oz or 85g
Ingredients: sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, soya lecithin and Polyglycerol Polyricinoleate (emulsifiers), vanillin (artificial flavor.)
Big nose of hazelnuts and cream. Creamy and smooth texture, fast melt time, rich, milky taste. A little waxy tasting on the finish.
The Black Bar
Dark Chocolate, 3oz or 85g
Ingredients: Sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, processed with alkali, soya lecithin, salt, vanilla extract.
Soft nose, little bit of tobacco,creamy and milky, nutty. Same nutty taste, sweet, cocoa, no bitterness or astringency. Just a fairly generic bar of dark chocolate. Kid stuff because it's so sweet, but I kind of liked the sweetness.
Generic gift shop chocolate. Nothing to write home about, but then again I didn't buy these for the chocolate. I bought them for the packaging.
