The Rix Souffle Caramelise chocolate bar is interesting, in the way that packaging certainly out wins the quality. This is a milk chocolate bar therefore, it is much sweeter. I honestly cannot taste any of the caramel flavour which is odd as the name implies "Caramelise". I must be missing something, or is that the whole point of the bar, just slap the title on the packaging but omit the caramelized flavour. It must be in there somewhere, far away. I took a large enough bite from this bar, and allowed the chocolate to mush around and disintegrate. Melting action was on the slower side, but I must admit, it was somewhat pleasant. Thirty seconds is the approximate time it took for the chocolate to thoroughly melt. Once this has been completed, the puffed rice is all that is left for you to nibble on. The combination of chocolate and puffed rice is actually not a bad idea. It works!!! So then what went wrong? Well most importantly, the chocolate quality itself is not of a high grade by any means. That is a huge factor in the taste of any chocolate. I sometimes wonder how the Maison Bouche bars can be sold at that price, and who buys them, really? This is a disappointing treat, and should cost no more than a few dollars. Oh, I know, it is the packaging. If the packaging was not so appealing, I would have not have given this bar a second thought. I think that most of the expenditures from the Maison Bouche Company is spent on packaging, and lacking quite a bit in taste and quality. Boo hoo.

My name is Soriah and I am an enormous lover of fine chocolates. I enjoy strolling through charming towns and by chance, finding a little, delightful chocolate gem hidden in the corner, offering bon bons that are ready to be just devoured.
