Hebert’s Fully Loaded Dark Turtle

This is a slab of dark chocolate topped with pecan pralines and toffee. The chocolate is rich, sweet, and has a smooth melt. The pecan pieces are much more sweet than nutty; honestly, I don’t think they taste much like pecans as all. The toffee pieces are nice and buttery, but seem out of place.

As with Hebert’s Rocky Road, the concept just isn’t working. It doesn’t taste like a turtle. I don’t think the toppings work well with the chocolate; they just add bursts of unnecessary sweetness to what is otherwise good chocolate.

Ingredient Watch: Partially hydrogenated oils in the toppings.

Nutrition Breakdown: Each bar contains 4 servings. Each serving contains 100 calories, 6g of fat, 10g or protein, and 1g of fat. Note that this is according to the nutrition label, which indicates a small serving size. Most people are going to eat half the bar, which is 2 servings, 200 calories, etc.

    You’ve so far reviewed the two Fully Loaded bars I have tried, but I still have the MoKaNola and Berry one to go! Have you tried these? I agree that the chocolate seems to get lost in the overbearing sweetness of the toppings. I much prefer some nice dark Endangered Species. (That sounds incredibly wrong.) At least the Fully Loaded aren’t too expensive!

    Hannah – I’ve tried the MoKaNola. I liked it a little better than this one, but it was still disappointing. I didn’t taste much coffee. I passed on the Berry one, because I’m generally not a huge fan of berries and chocolate (unless it’s fresh berries!). Oh, and I agree, Endangered Species does a great dark chocolate.
