Blackcurrant dark chocolate with almond silvers, wow, what a combination. It is the new “gal on the block” and I have to say “Welcome”. This is a seriously good chocolate bar. The blackcurrants are intense as the title claims. Nothing hidden here. From the very first bite, the fruit can be tasted, and it lasts until the end of the chocolate adventure. The almonds emerge quite quickly upon the smooth melting action, and retain their crunch until completion of consumption. The chocolate is of great quality, and I taste zilch of graininess, no bitterness, no sandy consistency of any sort, just some fruit, a very elegant texture. This is an intense blackcurrant bar, but not an intense dark chocolate due to the sweetness of the fruit. The aroma is quite strong, so much that I can smell it a mile away, metamorphically speaking of course, but you get the point. It is very fragrant. On the downside, the ingredient list is a hefty “D.” Please read them down below. Yuckkkkkk. Why add this?????????? In conclusion, I do enjoy the taste of this Intense Blackcurrant Dark Chocolate, and it also pairs well with a good cup of mint tea. However, due to the poor quality of gunk ingredients, I will have to deduct quite a few points in the overall rating.

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.
