Today's Review: Domino's Twisted Chocolate Dough Balls

Domino's have a good selection of their Twisted Dough Balls on the menu already, including the gorgeous japaleño and the hot dog and mustard that I reviewed a few months back. But now these twisty, doughy bites are crossing over into the dessert menu, as Domino's have released a chocolate version.

It doesn't sound like a great combination, how can the dough that works with jalapeño also work with chocolate? Well, it's slightly different. The first thing I noticed is that it's very salty. Perhaps that's just because of the contrast in tastes, but it's a little overwhelming. Thankfully, the warm, melted chocolate chips add a much needed dose of sweetness, and the whole experience is certainly sweet and filling. Unfortunately, there just seems to be an imbalance between the chocolate and dough. There's just not enough sweet chocolate to cancel out the saltiness, and while I enjoyed them while eating, they did leave a bit of a bad aftertaste. These are certainly a nice attempt at a dessert, but they're not perfect. If you like the other dough balls though, you should certainly try these.

My rating: 4/5
