Taste test: This chocolate bar from South Africa shared the word "Crisp" with Nestlé's Coffee Crisp, Toffee Crisp and Crunch Crisp bars, but it had a texture that was entirely different from any of them.
The bar had six sections running along its length, with the Nestle logo atop each one and a very shallow crevice in the milk chocolate exterior to separate the sections. When I bit in, I found a nice solid but light crunch. Looking at a cross-section, I could see a dark green interior that spanned the whole length of the bar, oblivious to the section divisions in the milk chocolate coating. The solid green stuff had tube-like airholes paralleling the length of the bar. It felt kind of like hard candy, except not nearly so hard. Some of the green stuff fell off onto the plate I was eating on, and it looked like shards of green glass. The mix of mint and milk chocolate was quite nice — it's a combination that I almost always enjoy — but it was delivered with a feel unlike any of the numerous mint chocolate snacks I've tried before. Very good!
