Ivory Mountain


The name of this bar has to be the biggest problem. While I don’t like to read into the candies I review too much, there’s a certain expectation you might get when you present certain ideas. When I read the words “Ivory Mountain” I start to think about chunky and white, but this bar really isn't that at all. That's not to say the Ivory Mountain bar is bad at all, in fact it's pretty good.

What you get is some high quality Cadbury chocolate, which I would argue is some of the best ingredients in any candy anywhere in the world. There’s also an interesting random crunch in this bar. The crunch seems to come from macadamia nuts mixed lightly in the chocolate. It gives it such an interesting crunch because you never know when or how many nuts are in each bite. This is one of those cases where a balanced mix of nuts isn’t necessary.

The part I really couldn't understand had to be the white chocolate mixed into this bar. I really couldn't taste it at all, the milk chocolate really covers it up completely. I figure it's more of a visual selling point than taste idea. It might have worked better if they swirled the white chocolate in little bits instead of the way they blended it.

It’s not a bad bar, but it doesn’t really sell the idea of ivory mountains. It also could have used a better delivery system for the white chocolate.
