Since my first time of trying a Vintage Plantations bar, I figured I’d grab another when I saw them being sold at For the Love of Chocolate in Richmond, VA. My first experience was positive so I figured, why not? For the some of the story behind Vintage Plantations, head to my original post here or go straight to their website!
This bar smelled citrusy and nutty. The flavors I tasted were spicy like cinnamon with a touch of chili. Halfway though my bite I got nuttiness and fruitiness. The texture was a little gritty and the bar left a dusty feeling on my tongue. I shared this bar with my coworkers who agreed with also tasting cinnamon. Overall we thought the flavors were interesting but we were not in love with the texture.
Though this bar didn’t blow me away, I’m not turned away from Vintage Plantations since my first experience trying their dark chocolate with toasted almonds bar was good. I’ll have to see if I decide to try more of their bars in the future.
