Chocolate XOXOX is actually quite appealing, in terms of packaging. I love the orange wrapping paper and golden heart stamp embedded in a flower. There is even a love poem included that is supposedly from Astrophil and Stella, an English sonnet sequence containing 108 sonnets and 11 songs. The name comes from two Greek words 'aster (star) and 'phil' (lover), and the Latin word 'stella' meaning star. Astrophil is the star lover, and Stella is his star. How adorable and very romantic, oh la la. Anyhow, let’s not get carried away with the lovely poetry and get back to the review. That is what you are all here for I assume. This chocolate bar is commendable, super subtle in overall taste, and mildly sweet. The fact that the sugar content is not that noticeable as it is enveloped in a semi-sweet chocolate makes this bar ever so more appealing. It also helps that there is 55% dark cocoa to prevent overly syrupy intoxication. The orange peel is quite understated, just a pinch. Less is more in this case. The chocolate is Belgium and of very good quality. There is a pleasantly soft lasting finish when the bite sized pieces melt in your mouth. I truly enjoy the smoothness, and the subtle taste had me coming back for more. There is no bitter aftertaste, just a pleasant punch. The Dark Chocolate Orange Peel chocolate bar is great accompanied with sparkling water.
