Although not very common today, strawberries and chocolate is not a new combination at all. In fact one of my all time favourite candy memories as a child was chewing on Bubblicious strawberry and chocolate bubble gum while ridding my bike on a hot summers day. I couldn't get enough of the stuff. Now that I've grown up, I've also developed a love for real strawberries dipped or coated in a nice high quality chocolate treat. The difference between these two loves is the quality of the strawberry flavour and the quality of the chocolate. This treat should tell me if I still have that love for fake strawberries in average chocolate.

Yup, still works for me, although the strawberry in this treat is a little more powerful then if you ate a real strawberry covered in chocolate. You also don't get that texture mash up of the chocolate melting in with the strawberry juice. With the real strawberry and chocolate it's a mixture of two flavours, with this treat it's more like one single flavour.

Having said that this flavour is not bad at all, sure it doesn't taste like real strawberries but there's something a little more creamy about it, and that gives it its own taste. Best of all you never have to worry about biting into one of these and getting either a really sour or a rotten strawberry, gotta love consistency.
