Seattle Chocolates Devil's Delight

Place purchased: World Market 

Price: $3.49

Number of reviewers: 3

Appearance - 6.0

The Seattle Chocolates Devil's Delight bar has a white chocolate/peanut butter filling with whole, knotted pretzels in a dark chocolate shell. The underside of the bar was completely coated in bloom. 

B: The bloom! 
E: Super bloomed, but cool design. 

Flavor and Taste - 7.0

The flavor of the dark chocolate is initially dominated by the sweetness of the filling and saltiness of the pretzels. Once those tastes subside, the rich and somewhat bitter taste of the dark chocolate comes through. The peanut butter flavor is definitely there, but it tastes muted since it is mixed with white chocolate. The pretzels do not have much flavor but add a substantial saltiness to the bar. 

B: Peanut butter overwhelms the chocolate. 
E: A little waxy at first, but then the creamy peanut butter flavor develops. Good flavor balance and salty/sweet. 

Texture - 7.0

The crunchiness of the pretzels and salt granules provide a satisfying contrast to the creamy filling. The texture of the dark chocolate is difficult to distinguish from the filling. 

B: A bit too soft. 
E: Firm chocolate with creamy filling and crunchy pretzel. 

Aftertaste - 7.0

The aftertaste is of salty dark chocolate. 

B: Peanut butter and a bit burnt. 
E: Buttery and creamy. 

Overall - 7.0

Overall, the Seattle Chocolates Devil's Delight bar is quite enjoyable with its myriad of tastes and textures.This is the best Seattle Chocolates bar I have tried to date. Though, the bar could be improved if the filling consisted of peanut butter rather than a peanut butter and white chocolate mixture.

B: More chocolate flavor would have been better. 
E: Great salty/sweet snack.
