Schogetten chocolate

June 18, 2015

I found this German chocolate bar randomly in a discount store. The expiration date said 9/2015, so I figured, why the heck not to try this for $0.99. This Schogetten chocolate bar had both white and milk chocolate, with hazelnut crisps as well as gianduja milk chocolate. Quite the mouthful of words, which also ended up manifesting itself into a cacophony of flavors.

My first impression of this chocolate bar, divided in 18 squares, was that it was very sweet. The white chocolate and milk chocolate were not very subtly enhanced by the sugar and I spent a couple hours jumping around the house after a couple squares of this chocolate. Furthermore there were hazelnut brittle bits, which did little to quell my hyperactivity and a lot for the bacteria in my mouth. The chocolate content in this bar came out roughly to 30%.

Ingredients: sugar, cocoa butter, hazelnuts, milk, cream powder, cocoa liquor, hazelnut crisp (sugar, hazelnuts, lactose, palm fat, glucose syrup), skim milk powder, lactose, sweet whey powder, butterfat, soy lecithin, vanilla extract.

Then, along came its darker counterpart the following week. I enjoyed this bar much more, for its deeper flavor profile of nuttiness and earthiness, and being less intense in the sugar factory department. I actually felt that the darker bar was a good representation of what German dark chocolate is like. For the same price of $0.99, I felt this bar’s price was quite the steal.
