Wawel Advocaat Bar
Having tried a few different Wawel chocolates now, I'm starting to learn that they're not one of the best Polish chocolate manufacturers around. My experience with their Cranberry Filled Bar was disappointing, and it was also the case with this "Maciek Adwokat" bar.
I bought this because it was very cheap in Tesco; it was only 39p which is cheaper than a standard chocolate bar from most UK manufacturers. I should have known that cheap chocolate is usually a bad sign though.
When I took it to the checkout I was actually asked for ID because it contains a small amount of alcohol in it. How silly is that? Even the staff member who served me thought it was stupid!
Taste-wise, the chocolate was very sugary and cheap tasting, similar to the Wawel Cranberry bar. The filling was also very sweet but had quite a strong alcoholic tang to it. If you like alcohol-filled chocolates you'll probably appreciate this bar, but I wasn't impressed. I don't know why I even bought it considering I don't really like alcoholic chocolates...I guess I was hoping for something creamy with only a mild alcoholic edge.
Overall, I wasn't really a fan of this bar but I'm still curious to see if Wawel produce any other decent chocolates. If you've tried any and have a favourite, please let me know in the comments.
Price: 39p at Tesco.
