When I decided to do this review I came across a little problem, I'm not 100% sure that the name of this treat is in fact "A". It's just the most predominant symbol on the package, so I made an assumption. In smaller writing on the sides it does say the words "Amaretto", but amaretto is also a flavour. So is this the amaretto flavoured "A" chocolate, or is this simply an "A"maretto flavoured chocolate? It's kind of confusing.

I'm thinking that using the letter is a way of trying to denote class, if it's the name or the first letter in amaretto. The thing is this treat doesn't really seem that classy. Sure it's a lot classier than say a bag of pop rocks or even a Kit Kat bar, but it's not hand made or anything. This treat is really what I like to call grocery store classy. It's the kind of treat that you can find in most grocery stores but it's a little more expensive than the generic grocery store candies.

The chocolate is a nice quality, and the flavour (amaretto) is a flavour that one might not find in average candy. It's the kind of treat one might hand out to co-workers on a special day, but not something you'd really want to give to that special someone for an anniversary.
