Nestlé Baci Perugina Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Bar Review
A 99p Store opened near me recently so I had to check it out, and of course I went straight for the chocolate aisle like an excited kid! When I spotted this bar of Nestlé Baci Dark I couldn't resist - Baci chocolates are awesome, especially in bar form so I was curious how the dark compared to the milk chocolate variety (click here for a review of that one from Evening Treats).
Unfortunately the bar wasn't all dark chocolate...it had a dark chocolate base with a milk chocolate upper half. This was a bit confusing to my poor tastebuds; I'd rather have either all milk or all dark chocolate!
The chocolate was very nice, it was full of a rich hazelnut gianduja filling plus whole and chopped hazelnuts, but unfortunately the dark and milk chocolates kind of cancelled each other out. The dark half spoiled the creamy sweetness of the milk chocolate, and didn't have a particularly rich or strong cocoa flavour - it just tasted of unsweetened chocolate. The milk chocolate was delicious though and brought a creamy sweetness to the hazelnuts, which is what I was really after! The gianduja was very tasty; think of Nutella in bar form and this comes pretty close.
Overall this is a very tasty and moreish bar, but the plain milk chocolate variety is much superior! Stay tuned for a review of that one soon, and also check out Evening Treats review of it HERE.
RATING: 7 out of 10.
Price: 99p at 99p Stores.
