I want to love this bar, I really do, but all I can do is like it. This bar has a lot going for it, so much so that I would put it on my top 5 list of wafer-based bars. The wafers are crispy, tasty and don’t leave me with that stale aftertaste that many wafers leave me with. The chocolate cream between the wafers is the highlight of this bar, smooth and chocolaty and works so well with the wafers. The coating is made with the classic Fazer milk chocolate, chocolate I’ve claimed could rank with the best mass-produced milk chocolate bar anywhere in the world. You’d think with all this high praise that this bar would get stellar marks, but there’s a few flaws that bring it down.
The small flaws with this bar are more of a personal preference than a true flaw, and the first flaw is all about the amount of chocolate coating this bar. I like a thicker coating of chocolate on my wafer-based bars than not what’s on offer here. You don’t want to go too thick with the chocolate, but a little more chocolate would improve this bar a lot. The second problem with this bar is that it’s kind of boring. I can’t figure out exactly what made this bar feel boring to me, but I didn’t feel anything special about this bar when I was eating it.
I think wafer bars
are fairly mundane, and with a few exceptions few companies have produced
a wafer bar that’s made me excited. I might even go so far as to say
that very few companies have produced wafer-based bars that I even consider
passable. The Kismet is certainly passable, I might even say that it was
a success, but I don’t think I’d call it a wild success.
