Eat with your Eyes: Grandessa Signature Single Origin

This is unfair. Pretty pictures of bad chocolate.

Grandessa Signature Origin 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.)

Grandessa Signature Origin Chocolate Java

The Java milk chocolate tasted burnt and sour.

Grandessa Signature Origin Chocolate Madagascar

The Madagascar 72% was fruity smelling but so fatty and empty tasting that it was pointless as a chocolate flavor delivery device.

Grandessa Signature Origin Chocolate Sao Thome

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.

  1. Buttered charcoal, priceless. Will run away if I see these in an Aldi.
