Bar: Salted Egg Cereal Bar
Maker: Fossa Chocolate (Singapore)
Price: $14/40g (Direct From Maker)
Munch Factor: 7.5/10
Ingredients: cocoa butter, milk powder, sugar, salted egg yolk, cereal, butter, curry leaves, chilli padi, sea salt.
Appearance: the small, thin white bar really pops off the shelf, a yellow border highlighting the simplicity. Inside is a packed, caramel-colored bar stuffed with cereal, curry leaves, and a touch of salt. It’s well-tempered and completely unlike anything I’ve seen before.
Aroma: sweet, like caramel & butter cookies.
Melt & Snap: beautiful melt & okay snap.
Flavor: putting it cereal-side down, first is the caramely, milky tones of the white chocolate, then the savory herbalness of the curry leaves before the salt bursts in for a moment and melts away some of the sweetness. Finish is curry leaves and lingering sweet cocoa butter.
Complaints & Complements: this bizarre combination of flavors will in no way work for everyone. Most people will be put off by the texture or visible leaves, and that’s okay. But personally, I’m a fan. The combination of savory & sweet in a way that represents Singaporean food is a winner in my book, though I wish the bar were bigger.
Context: in my air-conditioned office before lunch.
