Where: Jönköping, Sweden
Cost: 12.00 SEK
I bought this chocolate bar in a gas station in Jönköping but I was hesitant to try it. I don't really like black liquorice and this was a chocolate bar full of it. But, as always, boredom got the best of me during the long drive to Oslo today so I pulled it out of my purse, determined to have a nibble.
The chocolate bar was visibly studded with small, irregular chunks of very dark black liquorice. Kind of cool looking.
It wasn't as bad as I feared. The chocolate tempered the strong taste of the liquorice quite well and the textures were not too dissimilar. The weirdest part was how salty it was. I had forgotten that a lot of liquorice in some European countries is salty, but now that I've tried it I can see why it's so popular. For a non-liquorice lover it was a pleasant surprise.
Of course chocolate makes everything better. And this bar was "chok-o-licious".
