One of the many delicious chocolate snacks from Trader Joe's. The melted Belgium milk chocolate in the shape of potato chips, this snack is definitely unique. I love milk chocolate, and you can't go wrong with Belgium chocolate (except maybe it's old...). The chocolate "chips" is sprinkled with puffed and crispy rice, which added the crisp and crunchy texture. Therefore the "chips" became "crisps". A very unique idea, and a tasty textures combination. The creamy and smooth milk chocolate with the crispy puffed rice, this snack is definitely worth trying.
I give it a 7 out of 10.

European knows their chocolates well. Ritter Sport is made in Germany, and Germans know how to make good chocolates. The chocolate is rich, and creamy, with a subtle flavor of praline. The texture of the chocolate is incredible. It's creamy, and smooth, but it does not get hardened in the fridge, and it has very little after taste. The texture is very similar to truffle chocolates, which everyone loves. As a chocoholic, this is very hard to resist not to eat it all in one sitting...
I give it a 8.5 out of 10.

Someone gave me a giant Toblerone bar when I was little, and I fell in love with this trangular bar ever since. As a chocoholic, Toblerone is one of my favorites. I recently discovered the dark chocolate one. Not many places carry the dark chocolate version, but you should not have too much trouble finding it. Unlike the regular milk chocolate, the dark chocolate has a slight bitterness to it. The bitterness of the dark chocolate is definitely a plus, because it helped balanced the overall flavor of the chocolate and nougat. The milk chocolate one sometimes seemed too sweet and rich, but not the dark chocolate one. So, if you are a dark chocolate fan, you should definitely give it a try.
I give it a 8 out of 10.
