When I was exploring the boutique shops at my hotel last week, I was not disappointed to find this one.
I was drawn to the unusual varieties of the Chuao bars. After browsing the extensive selection, I chose this one.
While I don’t usually like nuts or dried fruit in my chocolate, the combination of dark chocolate, a bit of crispness and salt sounded like it could satisfy all sorts of cravings.
It was good, but it wasn’t spectacular, so the next day I went back for this one.
I expected it to be similar, but was enticed by the promise of milk chocolate (perhaps it would be smoother?) and kettle chips (which I love). I definitely liked it better.
In case you think I am not dedicated to the pursuit of the finest chocolate, I paid $9 for each bar (including tax). I would only do that under the influence of a resort boutique shop!
Have you tried an unusual chocolate bar lately?
Have you bought something at a resort that you would never pay that price for at home?
