Just like my previous post on the Patric Chocolate bars, I had brought these Dick Taylor bars to a picnic event and later that same day to a NASCAR racing event to share with friends. Unfortunately the pictures and tasting were rushed since people were eagerly waiting to taste them, and this will be a quick and dirty review, but here goes…
(By the way, if you want to read more about Dick Taylor, I highly recommend reading Megan Giller’s story on them here.)
The tasting notes were listed on the package as dried plum, tart cherry and jasmine. I could definitely smell cherry with hints of jasmine, and I tasted plum with subtle jasmine and tartness. Toward the end of my bite the tart cherry flavor was dominant. The boyfriend tried it and said he didn’t taste jasmine but he definitely tasted cherry. I ended up keeping this bar to myself the rest of the day and finishing it off 🙂
The tasting notes were listed on the packaging as plumeria (I can’t say I know how that tastes), blackberry peach cobbler (that’s super specific), and espresso. The bar had a light floral scent but it had a strong floral flavor that kind of drowned out any other flavors at first. Espresso slowly developed halfway through my bite along with light astringency. I don’t know how they got blackberry peach cobbler as a tasting note because I didn’t detect anything like it, but I shared this bar with people at the NASCAR race and it was quickly consumed amongst a group of 6 guys! Not once did it return to my hands and I simply received word that it was “very good!” ?
