Cruz Classic Milk Chocolate
Taste test: I've learned to be wary of huge, inexpensive chocolate bars sold at discount stores, as the temptation of cheap chocolate has so often ended in disappointment. But if it's a chocolate company that I've never heard of, with some indication of longevity, I sometimes can't resist the lure. That's what happened here.
I opened the wrapper to find that the bar had a 3x4 grid of large rectangular sections, with barely any indentation between sections and a pattern of lines atop each one. This bar was maybe the largest ever, at about three and half inches wide and over 7 inches long. It was fairly thick for such a big bar. The actual sections didn't look like the ones pictured on the package, which appeared to have smooth inverted dome tops.
When I tried to break off a section, things got weird. The problem wasn't that it was hard to break; quite the opposite, this bar was exceptionally soft, so the whole thing just bent when I tried to break off a piece. And when I eventually did break a piece, there was all sorts of melting going on at the fingertips. The chocolate tasted pretty good, as it was fairly creamy and somewhat rich chocolate. But it was definitely the meltiest bar ever. I probably should not have expected more from such a cheap bar.
