Chocolate incense

The Burger got these for her birthday and decided to share them at the office. When she ripped open the pack in excitement, as they were bought from the lovely Liberty shop on Regent Street, you could instantly smell the incense.

This is not chocolate - it is like eating a bathroom air freshener or inhaling a big dollop of incense at some spiritual healer's house -mixed in with a piece of chocolate. Although it is organic and free of artificial flavours and colors we have not been able to have more than a bite.

The milk chocolate one has Goji berries, which are the popular berries found in the Himalayas and have super health benefits, in it with cardamon oil (which probably is the cause of the smell and awful taste) and the white one has a hint of Ylang Ylang (pronounced ee-lang ee-lang). Not sure what Ylang Ylang is but the essential oil of this is most likely what makes this bar also horrible.

What happened to old fashioned chocolate and nut combo?
