One of the great advantages of not being able to read a language on a package of a chocolate bar happens when one is happily surprised by what's in the bar. From feeling the bar I could tell I was dealing with a wafer bar. After unwrapping it I found that it was covered in chocolate. So my first assumption was that I was going to eat chocolate covered wafers, probably with some kind of chocolate or cream stuff in between each wafer. I wasn't expecting disappointment, but I also wasn't expecting what I got.

On my first bite I got a surprise that put a smile on my face, something chewy. Between the wafers there's some kind of chewy substance that I can only assume is caramel. I'd never thought of putting caramel between wafers in a wafer bar before, but I couldn't recommend it more. The wafers work so well with the caramel creating a contrasting texture that's really fun to chew. I'm sure it only works with a chewy caramel (as is found in this bar) as opposed to a drippy caramel.

This Cha Cha bar has proven to be a hidden gem of a bar, something I'd recommend you try if you have the means. I liked it so much that I couldn't wait to share it with Allison, so she could enjoy the surprise too.
