I picked up this bar in a gift set of three Choxie Truffle Bars. It was the Milk Chocolate Collection, which also contained Creme Brulee and Peanut Butter Pretzel. Those reviews will be appearing over the next few weeks, along with reviews of the three bars in the Coffee Collection. Lots of Choxie coming your way, but I’ll try to space it out.
The Choxie Truffle Bars are thick slabs of an outer layer of chocolate and a truffled center. It’s split into eight rectangles. The Gingerbread Bar is milk chocolate filled with a slightly darker truffled center and gingerbread pieces.
I’ve already expressed my love of gingerbread in my Frey Gingerbread review, so comparisons are inevitable. While I found the Frey bar perfectly balanced, this bar leaned a little too heavily toward the chocolate. Mind you, it’s good chocolate – not too sweet with a lovely melty center. The problem is that there aren’t enough gingerbread pieces. They are few and far between, lending only a hint of gingerbread, not the full-on flavor that I crave.
