One of the very first chocolatiers to submit their products to The Chocolate Cult was Wiseman House Chocolates by sending us three products. Two were reviewed by your own Chocolate Priestess in 2009 but one needed an more discerning palate and so we handed it over to our Mocha Acolyte who then moved a bit too far away. He has finished with his final review for us all and I want to send him off with a bang by featuring a solo review by him. Without further words, here is his review of their Mocha Crunch.
Inside the mouth, however, the rough-finished texture quickly gives way to an amazingly well-realized blend of smoothness and crunch. The chocolate melts quickly into creamy goodness, whereas the grittier ground coffee beans give this mocha treat real punch. The flavor is just as harmonious - the dark chocolate and crunchy coffee are in perfect balance.
I think I could easily eat a whole bag in one sitting, because they are simply that tasty - but there is no need to do so, because they are also so rich and satisfying that just a few made a nice treat.
Wiseman House Mocha Crunch successfully fulfills both my chocolate and coffee cravings, and I heartily recommend it to mocha lovers unafraid of sweeter pleasures."
With that, I hope all of you will check out Wiseman House Chocolates. We have another person willing to take on the mantel of Mocha Acolyte but to davebearin we say, when we are together again, we will visit a chocolate or coffee shop and indulge.
