Brona: Toffee Treat

Just some more random, imported chocolate from World Market today, nothing special. Except that, you know, it's Irish chocolate with toffee. So I bought it. You know.

The look is certainly fun. That clear wrapper shows the toffee pieces in the chocolate on one side and all of the Celtic designs on the other side. Quite pretty. The chocolate's aroma is caramel milk chocolate, strong like in a confection shop.

As already mentioned, the toffee comes in little pieces embedded in the chocolate. It's wonderful toffee, too. While it is, of course, hard, it also has some give and stickiness to it; it isn't the rock solid type. It also comes with a fantastic cooked sugar taste that gives some of that creme brûlée flavor.

The milk chocolate is milk chocolate. I would definitely say it has more of a European than American milk chocolate taste to it. So more cocoa flavor and less of just sugar and milk fat (though it certainly does have sugar and milk fat in it). A hint of richness comes in along with the strong caramel and vanilla flavors--which works well for confection chocolate.

There isn't much more to say. It's pretty straightforward: for toffee fans, this chocolate is a win. It's just what you want from a casual confection.
