Taste test: This chocolate bar promised to include peanuts, pretzels, salt and hot peppers! It's the first one we're aware of with that particular combination.
I unwrapped it to find that they went old-school with the wrapper, providing separate paper and foil layers. The bar had six dome-topped sections, decorated with a series of parallel lines running perpendicular to the bar.
I bit in to find that the pretzel and peanuts were broken down into very small pieces within the bar, so they added just a bit in the way of crunch. The taste was mainly milk chocolate initially, and I couldn't really specifically taste the pretzels or peanuts. But after a short delay, the chili peppers kicked in too, for a nice mix of hot and sweet. I could notice a hint of saltiness too from the pretzels, peanuts and salt. Those three extremes — sweet, hot and salty — really worked well together for a very different and good taste. The hot peppers stayed around for a nice lingering aftertaste. Very good!
