Chuao Firecracker Chocolate Bar

April 30, 2013

Whoever comes up with these kooky ideas from Chuao Chocolatier definitely caught my attention. I picked up the Firecracker, mainly because it looked the most interesting out of all the typical chile-Venezuelan chocolate blends of the brand.

This bar really was a heck of a firecracker. After the chocolate melted slightly on my tongue, the rock candy really took off and danced in my mouth. When the noise died down, the chile created a slight burn, along with the rest of the chocolate, to allow the “embers” of the “firecracker” to die down.

I must say, it was quite a lovely treat. Taste-wise, though, not that big of a fan. The bar was a bit too sweet for my liking, and wasn’t too big on the chile-chocolate combination to begin with. However, I am glad that I was able to try it. A real one-of-a-kind experience!

Nutritionals for the bar: 380 calories, 26g fat, 48g carbs, 6g fiber, 4g protein, 4% Vitamin A, 12% iron. Ingredients were: dark chocolate (60% cacao, sugar, cacao butter, soy lecithin, natural vanilla), popping candy (sugar, corn glucose, lactose, carbon dioxide), pasilla chile, chipotle chile, salt.

What a start to a fun week!
