Today's Review: Chokablok Caramel Yolkie

I do like a good bar of Chokablok, especially their seasonal offerings, but they're mostly large and quite expensive to boot. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this nice little bar nestled among the other 3 for £1 goodies in the Easter aisle. It's a mix of milk and white chocolate, with a bit of caramel nestled inside that yolk there.

Okay, this isn't quite as interesting as other Chokablok bars, which are normally embedded with all sorts of delights, but it's still pretty good. The chocolate is of nice quality, I was sure I got a hint of dark chocolate while munching my way through it, I had to check the packet to make sure it was milk, but it wasn't necessarily a bad thing, it just created a bit more juxtaposition between that and the white chocolate. The milk does taste a little dark, but in the end it evens out to a nice, satisfyingly thick and creamy chunk of chocolate. The yolk is a fun little addition, the outer shell gives way to a nice glob of caramel that is lovely and sweet. It's a shame it's so concentrated in one place, it would have been nice to taste that caramel throughout the whole bar, but that's the nature of a yolk I suppose. This is a nice little bar from Chokablok, it's good to see not all of their seasonal stuff consists of huge bars and eggs, and I'm sure I'll pick up a couple more of these before they disappear.

My rating: 4/5


  1. I like the sound of idea! Nice to see tesco do a cheaper Chokablok option.

  2. Too much a Hotel Chocolat copycat for my liking.
