Taste test: This large, thin chocolate bar came in a cardboard box just slightly larger than the bar.
The box had a neat opening device, a perforated tab on one corner of the back of the box that, once ripped off, allowed an envelope-like tab to open the end of the box. Inside the inner foil wrapper was a 6x4 grid of detachable sections, each bearing the Lotte logo. The chocolate was a bit darker in color than most milk chocolate bars, though still several shades lighter than your typical dark chocolate. The taste was creamy but very rich, almost like an intense chocolate cake. Eating just a section or two was quite satisfying, so I could easily avoid eating the whole bar in one sitting. (The nutrition label said the whole bar was one serving, with 330 calories, 170 fat calories, 19g of total fat, 11g of saturated fat and 2g of trans fat.) With the 24 total sections, I think I could space this bar out into at least five separate snacks.
