Bar: Blueberry & Milk Chocolate (50%)
Maker: Videri (North Carolina, USA)
Price: $7.99/85g (Direct From Maker)
Overall Rating: 4.5/10
Munch Factor: 6/10
Ingredients: Organic Cocoa Beans, Organic Sugar, Organic Dry Whole Milk, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Dried Blueberries
Appearance: Distribution of berries looks even; adds a wonderful color and aesthetic. Love the centered “V.”
Aroma: The blueberry hits you rather immediately upon opening. Then you realize the dark sweetness, and you lean down to smell it, and the blueberry side has got a nice, light fruit scent among the cocoa.
Melt & Snap: Quite a hard melt & a nice snap for a 50% milk.
Flavor: very sweet, good chocolate flavor, but a somewhat clumpy mouthfeel. Very one-dimensional. The blueberry influence is really hard to pick out, even when looking for it.
Complaints & Complements: One of the most photogenic bars I have ever encountered. The interplay of color is fantastic, and it is well-branded, down to the vacuum-packed bars in my box. Re-sealable, even down to the individual bars— 10/10 in that regard. Bars are thin enough to snap easily for sharing.
