Nestle Noir Cherry bars gets my vote for great tasting chocolate. I am just not a fan of cherries with my chocloate. I did not like the taste of this bar, and I would not purchase this again. This one is for cherry lovers, doesn't agree with my taste buds.
I ablsolutely LOVE the new Nestle Noir flavors, ALL of them! But the dark chocolate with cherry has got to be the best...nothing can compare to chocolate and cherries, and they hit it perfectly with this bar. It is so to die for, I will get this every time I am craving chocolate, and even when I'm not, just to have it around.
I love cherries, and I loooove dark chocolate, so I thought this chocolate would be right for me... not quite. It was okay and if it crossed my path again I would probably eat it, but it was not as good as I had thought it would be. There seemed to be very few cherry pieces in the bar, and they didn't really taste "right"...
I say you are better off to get dried cherries and some nice dark chocolate and nibble them together for the best chocolate cherry combo.
Yuuuuuum! I am a fan of dark chocolate so I was really excited to receive this product! I've got to say that this is some of the best chocolate I've ever tasted. I loved the dried cherry and chocolate combination. I even shared it with some people (people who like and dislike dark chocolate) and this was a winner. The cherry taste almost eliminates the dark chocolate bitterness/bite that we usually experience when eating dark chocolate. I would seriously recommend this chocolate and I will go buy myself this flavour next time I see it in the grocery store! Well worth every penny!
Of the four Nestle Noir chocolate bars that I sampled, I was expecting this to be my least favourite because I am not generally a fan of cherries or chocolate covered cherries. There's something about the goeey texture of chocolate covered cherries that turns me off and reminds me of the liquid medicine I had to take for colds as a child. (It's not a surprise that I have avoided cherry-flavoured anything since childhood.) I was skeptical about whether I would like this, but I was pleasantly surprised. Instead of the soft maraschino cherries I was expecting, Nestle opted to use small bits of chewy, dried cherry. It was a very good complement to the slight bitterness of dark chocolate. While this isn't my favourite of the group, I found myself unexpectedly enjoying the Nestle Noir Cherry.
To me there really was nothing remarkable about this bar. It was good. It was tasty. I'd eat it again. But its nothing I'd crave or desire much. The chocolate was good. But I felt the texture of the cherries interrupted the pleasurable chocolate. Not my favorite, but I'd definitely eat it again.
When I tried this bar for the first time, I wasn't too fond of it. I thought the cherry bits overpowered the taste of the dark chocolate. The second time I had some, I really enjoyed it. I'm a fan of chocolate covered cherries, but sometimes they can be far too sweet. I found the cherry pieces in this bar to be a little sour, which was a nice change and actually went well with the dark chocolate. I would probably pick up this bar, if the caramel wasn't available.
I really do not like traditional chocolate covered cherries. Mostly because the cherry is usually floating in the red gooey mess. So this is a welcome change. I liked the chewiness of the cherries while the bitter/sweet chocoalate melted on my tongue. I think this is a great dark chocolate change from the usually overly sweet bars on the market!
This is the first of the 4 Nestle Noir I've sampled and now I can't wait to try the other 3!
I normally prefer milk chocolate to dark, but this had a lovely rich taste and was not too sweet. The addition of cherry added a wonderful tart complexity and overall, I think the combination worked very well.
As the bar is huge and quite rich to eat at one sitting, I'm pondering culinary possibilities for this product and I think the following would be fantastic;
-grated and added to steamed milk for a delicious hot chocolate
-grated (or just smashed up) and added to any brownie recipe
-grated and melted with hot cream for a chocolate fondue
I really liked this chocoalte bar. It think the cherry bits added a great flavor to the chocolate and gave a slightly sweeter taste to the intensity of the chocolate. Although I expected a cherry flavor from the cherry bits, I did not expect the cherry bits to be chewy - an added surprise. I really enjoyed munching on those bits of cherry.
I originally wanted to say that the pieces of cherry could have been larger, but then the chocolate would have been overwhelmed by the cherry flavor and I don't think that's what Nestle's intention was. I think they accomplished exactly what they set out to do - add a bit of flavor and texture to a delicious chocolate bar for those who want a little something different for a change.
This bar quickly became a favorite of mine.
