Eat with your Eyes: Grandessa Signature Single Origin
This is unfair. Pretty pictures of bad chocolate.
I’m a big fan of Aldi candies and chocolate and for the most part they’re far better than you’d expect for the price.
This is not one of those cases. The Grandessa Signature Origin Chocolate Assorted Sticks were in fact assorted and were clever little sticks of chocolate. (Package photo here.)
The Java milk chocolate tasted burnt and sour.
The Madagascar 72% was fruity smelling but so fatty and empty tasting that it was pointless as a chocolate flavor delivery device.
The Sao Thome 75% was bitter, dry and more like buttered charcoal than chocolate.
Eat with your Eyes is a recurring feature where I just show you stuff I’ve photographed but probably won’t get around to reviewing. Feel free to share your reviews here of the candy if you’ve had it.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
