If you want different, this is a treat for you. The first interesting part of this snack has to be its lack of sweetness. It's so full of nuts with a dark chocolate coating that there really isn't anywhere to sweeten it up. There is a light caramel that glues the nuts together but its such a small amount that it really doesn't affect the flavor at all. However it does affect the interior, a little bit of a stickiness. This bar is a great treat for a specific taste, but there is one thing that irked me the wrong way. The Torrone seemed to have a fruity taste. I can't really explain it, a mystery of all candy, but it just didn't work for me. This flavor seemed to get to me more after I finished the bar as well, a real strong aftertaste. If you can, try this out. It's very different than average North American bars and the quality was great, it just had a strange after taste.
