Another item from Uncle Sam's Chocolate Factory is their uniquely made Almond Butter Crunch, this box they sent us had both milk and dark chocolate varieties. Click on the video below to see how they make it. It is fun to watch and you'll learn what makes their process unique far better than I could explain it in words.
Wasn't that interesting, Sisters and Brothers? The pieces are just over a quarter an inch thick toffee-like butter crunch covered with a layer of either dark or milk chocolate. The pieces vary widely in terms of size.
So let's get down to our senses and this treat. Really not a strong scent when I opened the box or when I brought a piece of the Milk Chocolate Almond Butter Crunch close to my nose. It feels cool in my fingers and makes a soft snap when I take a bite but continues to crunch with each chew. The first flavor is milk chocolate then the almonds and this a burst of butteriness that builds and builds. The butter crunch starts to stick to my teeth as I chew but not too much. The milk chocolate fades to leave the buttery tang the dominant flavor exactly as we experience with all treats of this basic type.
The Dark Chocolate variety has a cocoa scent to it so right there is the first difference. The snap is the same but the crunch seems a touch louder as I chew. The chocolate taste is stronger stays part of the blend through the entire process of enjoying one bite. This is more likely to happen with darker chocolate but in our experience here on our features and regular reviews it is rare so this really impresses me. Of the two I strongly recommend you get the Dark Chocolate variety if you want more of a chocolate flavor but the Milk Chocolate if you really just want the butter crunch part.
Uncle Sam's Almond Butter Crunch. This has a unique flavor and the dark does great in terms of lasting chocolate flavor so it deserves a Sacrament status for the flavor, the ingredients, and to support smaller private businesses. This closes off our featured reviews of the three products that Uncle Sam's Chocolate Factory sent us to reveal to you all, Sisters and Brothers. Please leave them a few comments and let them know what you think, Sisters and Brothers.
