So, I went to Whole Foods the other day [shocking, I know.. =) ] and they were handing out free samples of chocolates. Why not? I thought. How could I turn down a piece of natural chocolate? I opted for the White Chocolate with Strawberries, as it seemed interesting. I ate a small piece, and really liked it, so I bought a bar, and took it home( I also REALLY liked the wrapper- how pretty !!)
In fact, the entire ride home I couldn’t wait to eat it. I ate it so fast when the samples were given out, I felt as if I didn’t really get to enjoy it. No worries- I mean I DID have an entire bar waiting for me…
I opened it up, and noticed little squares of chocolate making up a rather large bar. Pale white/beige in color, but as I broke off a square there were a bunch of pinkish-red spots within the chocolate- alas! The strawberries!
I broke off a piece and ate it. Mmmmmm. Honestly, even if you don’t like white chocolate, I think you’ll like this. Why? Because- it doesn’t even taste like white chocolate- it tastes like STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM! Immediately when I tried it I thought of strawberry icecream, with vanilla undertones. Creamy and sweet, with just the slightest bit of texture from the peices of strawberries. Just absolutely delicious.
This is getting 5 stars from me. Hands down the best white chocolate I have ever had. It’s not the healthiest thing to eat given the high calorie and fat content, but it’s a ver indulgent and very delicious chocolate. I’ll take this for my Holiday treat!
