(Real Raspberries + Real Chocolate) x Real Intensity = REAL TASTE
As for overall taste, the morsels are very bitter. Since the chocolate is bitter-sweet and the raspberries are unsweetened, the flavour is quite intense. However, this is not a bad thing. I like bitter-flavoured chocolate treats. It makes me feel less guilty about indulging. Plus I just like the taste of bitter chocolate and rich-yet-bitter desserts. Also, the flavour is very real; just raspberries, dark chocolate and nothing else. I believe that real flavour is the best flavour.
The only down-side (for people who have problems with their teeth) is that the seeds may bother you. However, seeds are the best way to tell that a raspberry-flavoured chocolate is made with real raspberries. The only other criticism I can offer is that I wish they would have put the percentage (%) of cocoa solids on the package. It's always a "nice-to-know" for people who are picky about the type of chocolate they eat.
Raspberry Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake that I make, so just for fun, I decorated a cake with the Dufflet raspberry chocolate morsels.
