Taste test: This huge chocolate bar had a foil wrapper enclosed in a thin cardboard, rather than the usual paper wrapper.
The bar included 10 very large sections in a 2x5 grid, with each section measuring about an 1-1/2 inches by 1-3/4 inches. Four sections equals one serving, according to the label. Each section had Côte d'Or's elephant mascot on top. The chocolate consisted of three layers, each about equally thick, with the dark chocolate center layer surrounded by two milk chocolate layers. This is one of the only candy bars I've seen that combines milk chocolate and dark chocolate in the same bar, and I thought the result were quite tasty. The chocolate was smooth, and most bites started out with the milk chocolate taste and then progressed toward the dark. Pretty good.

Smell test: Slightly more of a dark chocolate smell than milk chocolate.
From the package: “34% Cacao” ... “Belgium's #1 Chocolate Brand” ... “Discover Côte d'Or's special blend of roasted cacao beans which includes cacao beans from West Africa and Noble cacao beans from South America. Smooth milk chocolate taste envelops a center of dark for a taste combination both rich and creamy.”
