This bar represents my guilty pleasure, It is dark but sweet, The caramel notes and crunchy texture are my weakness here. It is also floral, citrusy (orange), and sweet tropical fruit flavors.
Good snap, tart nose. Initially citrus on the tongue following with fudgy chocolate flavor. Texture is smooth around the inclusions. I don't get a lot of toffee but notice the lovely cacao nib when chewing. I don't care for inclusion bars but this one works. Finish is long, still citrus and fudge. I think the nib inclusions add a lot of the bright citrus component so if you enjoy nibs, you'll love this.
I usually prefer plain bars to ones with nibs, but this one wouldn't be the same without them. The texture of the nibs works really well with the toffee notes. There is a little citrusy sweetness as well. I would agree with the "Playful" description on the front of the package.
