The overall flavour is awesome. At first I felt that it wasn't a real sweet treat - which is fine with me since I usually prefer chocolate to be less sweet than your average candy bar. But as I ate more of the chocolate bar, I found that the treat seemed to taste richer and more luxurious. The salt was a nice touch and added a wonderful hint of crunchy texture to the otherwise smooth, melt-in-your-mouth milk chocolate and peanut butter combination.
I not only loved the taste, but I like the fact that this chocolate is made from organic ingredients and is all-natural. It is not easy finding a peanut butter-and-chocolate treat that does not have hydrogenated oils or modified corn starch in it, but Vosges Haut Chocolat has done a wonderful job of making an all-natural and organic peanut butter chocolate bar with a big flavour kick.
So if you like peanut butter and chocolate and want to treat yourself with a high end product that includes exotic salts, the Vosges Organic Peanut Butter Bonbon bar is worth the $8 for 85 grams of chocolate indulgence.
Here are the package details from the chocolate that I tasted today:
