Pig all? I'm sure that means something else in Swedish, fortunately in English it makes sense as well. When I took my first bite of the Pigall bar I wanted to Pig (out on it) all. My bar was even a little worse for wear, a little melted, but still remained fantastic. It was messy because I was carrying it around with me on a warm summers day, and it melted. However it melted in the best way possible.

Although you often don't want a bar to be melted before you eat it, when they do melt, it can tell you a lot about the quality of the treat. For example, in the case of the Pigall, the chocolate did not re-solidify at an alarming speed when I tried to cool it off, it stayed melted. It also melted under not so ridiculously hot conditions. Both of these are a good sign of a nice quality milk chocolate. The taste and consistency of the chocolate would attest to that as well.

The middle bit of the bar was a little bit of a mystery to me. The best way to describe it is to call it a rice crispy wafer, a really thick rice crispy like wafer It worked well with the smooth and creamy milk chocolate. So although I spent a good 10 minutes licking chocolate off of my fingers and the wrapper it was a pleasant experience
