Frey Hot Chilli Pepper

I’d never had a spicy chocolate bar before, so this was a first. It’s described as “extra fine dark chocolate with chilli.” It’s 55% cocoa solids, which I think of as classic dark chocolate. It certainly smells of chili, and when you snap it in half you can see the little reddish bits.

Like the other Frey bars, this is on the thin side. It is a 100g tablet with 2.5 servings per bar and 210 calories per serving.

Lets first talk about my expectations for this bar. I didn’t expect any heat or burn. I expected that the chili would lend more complexity to the chocolate. What I got was the total opposite. The initial taste was your standard, slightly sweet dark chocolate. A few seconds later, the heat started. It wasn’t really spicy, just hot; the kind that leaves a burn in your throat.

Now, I’m used to spicy/hot foods, so this was a fun surprise for me, but if you don’t like heat, stay away! I only ate two of the ten pieces, and I’ll probably share the rest. It’s a fun novelty, and I’m glad I tried it, but it’s not something that I really like. The chili just didn’t add enough to the chocolate; it was more like a special effect.

However, these could be good for practical jokes..
