Just a quick one tonight, folks. H.CarryOn is a bit of an early bird, so I’m trying to get to bed before 2am this week in the hopes of not needing to switch my coffee from decaf to the real deal in the mornings…
This chocolate bar had promise. Promise of the “interesting inclusions” kind, as while I’m not a huge fan of fruit in chocolate, I am willing to try anything that moves beyond the raisin + hazelnut combination.
Sadly, Seeds of Change’s Dark Chocolate with Mango and Cashew did not quite live up to this promise. However, it at least didn’t crush my spirits in the way my parents did, during my childhood, when they reneged on their pledge to take my brother and me to the Disneyland Resort before we left America. Yes, I can hold a grudge for 16 years.
This chocolate was pleasant, but uninspiring. The mango contributed nothing flavour-wise, even when I diligently searched out the tiny pieces of chewiness. Similarly, the cashews provided little more than a textural contrast, while the chocolate itself did not go far beyond a simple and slightly honey-like sweetness. None of this is to say that the chocolate was bad, just that I became bored with it extremely quickly.
(I also can’t help wanting to try their Hanalei Vegetarian Chicken Teriyaki frozen meal, just because it sounds a little bit like my name. And I’m all for eponymous eating.)
