I have many favorite combinations, but chocolate and coffee are high up. I’ve already had great luck with Frey’s Café and Cacao and Choxie’s Kona Coffee Bar. I’m pleased to report that this is another great coffee bar to add to the list. Yes, my preference for the flavor contributes to the high ratings, but that’s just the way it works!
This bar is milk chocolate with a creamy chocolate-espresso filling and bits of almond and toffee. Choxie’s other truffle bars have been seriously lacking the bits and pieces. This bar improves in that department, but is still inadequate. There are a few almond and toffee bits, though they are concentrated in the center of the bar. The almonds add a warm nutty flavor that compliments the chocolate and coffee very well. I only wish there were more.
I first described this as rich hot chocolate with a shot of coffee, but it’s more balanced than that. There’s little competition between the two flavors. Instead they enhance each other so that you get the full body of each. Like the other Choxie truffle bars, the creamy center lends a great melt-in-you-mouth texture.
More almonds and this would get a near perfect score.
