Rocher Praliné "Lait"


I can't tell you how long I've been waiting to review this treat. As far as I know (having not tasted it yet) this treat has all the makings of being really good. I say this because first of all it's French chocolate, that alone means a whole lot in the Candy Critic world. Now I don't want to get on my European chocolate is better than North American chocolate rant again, but let me just say I have yet to be proven wrong on this subject.

Next is the fact that it's a Rocher, I love them even when they're from North America, so a French Rocher has to be great. I am of course assuming that Rocher is a French word, so it means they must make them really well. So, I guess I should stop thinking about this treat and writing about why this treat's so good and just eat the thing, right?

We have a winner! Everything I said in the top two paragraphs is true, this treat is awesome, and I mean awesome. Hazel nutty, smooth and just the right amount of crunchy, the people at Casino really know how to make a truly great treat. Let me also inform you that these are available in grocery stores in France, it's not like I paid an arm and a leg for it in some specialty shop in Paris. Man, that's good; my only compliant truly is that I don't have another to eat right after. I think if I was to think about this treat objectively, theirs is one complaint. I guess its not that original an idea, I’ve tasted Rocher from many other companies all over the world, but when you're this good you don't really have to be original.
