Thanks all for the kind welcome to miss Erika! :) She’s quite fab, right?! :)
Today I have a special little review for you after receiving this lovely package in the mail:
I happened upon the Angell bar website a few months ago and was eager to test their theory that they could get anyone to like white chocolate. I’ve always been much more of a dark chocolate fan… I like how reminiscent it is of coffee, and I love the bitterness juxtaposed with the sweet. To me, white chocolate is often cloying. So I was a little cheeky and it landed me a couple of these little guys:
Firstly, the back-up story. Angell is a husband-wife operation dedicated to perfecting healthier, organic candy bars that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating. The Snow Angell has 190 calories and its ingredients list is blissfully short:
Ingredients: Organic white chocolate* (organic cane sugar *, organic whole milk, organic cocoa butter*, organic soy lecithin (an emulsifier), organic natural vanilla), organic tapioca syrup, organic oats, organic dried coconut, organic honey, organic coconut extract with other natural flavors, sea salt. *Fair Trade CertifiedTM
And as the adorable stickers they sent me say, their motto is “eat no evil.”
How did it taste though? That’s the real question, right?
Honestly, they were delicious. Just a little chewy, sweet but not disgustingly so, and filled with totally natural coconutty sweetness enrobed in just a light touch of white chocolate.
I didn’t get to try the other flavors, but their website has me practically drooling over the Dark Angell. However, the Snow Angell was quite good and I would probably buy it myself… though my affinity still lies with the dark chocolate camp.
What can I say, I’m obviously a little dark & devilish. ;)
Do you like white chocolate?
