Taste test: This candy bar was thick and consisted of just one large section, with an elaborate logo spanning most of the top declaring "Cottage Box Exclusive Quality Chocolate." I didn't know until I broke into the bar whether it was going to be honey-infused chocolate, or a chocolate bar with a honey filling, but the single-section aspect had me suspecting it was filled.
I broke off the end of the bar to find that it indeed was filled, as there was a cavity nearly as wide as the bar, filled with the special Kangaroo Island honey. It wasn't liquidy enough to make a real mess, but the honey did slowly flow out once the bar was broken open. I ate that end of the bar and found the mix of chocolate and honey to be very good, rich and milky and very sweet. But if I didn't know it contained honey, I don't think I would have figured out that it did, as the mix of chocolate and honey didn't taste much like honey to me. After eating that piece, I dipped my finger into some of the honey oozing out of the rest of the bar, to try it without the chocolate, and it did taste like honey (though quite different from the honey I'm accustomed to). The bar was a bit messy because of the honey, and it was not well geared to partial consumption because of the honey filling and lack of sections, but the mix of honey and chocolate was still a very nice taste.
