Choco Pod "Chinita Nibs"

Chuao Chocolatier

For some reason I can't really figure out what I'm about to eat. Normally I can get some kind of an idea from the package about what kind of treat I'm expecting, but this one is a bit of a mystery. The package had a description but underneath that it says "Unusual, Unexpected, & Delicious" and I'm not really sure what that means. Maybe I'm just being paranoid but I'm a little nervous about biting into this thing.

Wow, this thing is nutty, and I mean that not in the crazy way. The first flavour I caught on my first bag is nutmeg and it's pretty much the most powerful flavour throughout the whole piece of chocolate. I get a little of the cocoa flavour in the background but the nutmeg just really steals the show. It might even be a little too much nutmeg for my liking, and that’s saying a lot since I do like nutmeg. Cocoa and nutmeg are an interesting flavour combination, and it's interesting to eat some chocolate that has more going on than just sweetness, but the nutmeg might be a little too strong.

Unusual, I've never had nutmeg in chocolate like this before, so it sure is unexpected, for sure, however I didn't expect that much of a bitter nutmeg taste. Delicious, it's ok, it's different, but I really couldn't eat too much of it in one sitting.
