So what if I don't know exactly what sponge candy is? It's chocolate coated sugar of some sort, what else matters? Hehehe. Sure looks cool doesn't it? I ate the samples after taking this picture and it's a sweet crunchy bit (kind of like a rice crispy) surrounded by a thick milk chocolate coating. They do vary in size a bit.
I take my first bite and, hmmm, that's different. It almost tastes carbonated. You could tell me this is cream soda ice cream and I would believe you.
I'm digging right into the heart of this swirl and I still don't know what to make of it. It's a really strong burnt flavor, almost like some kind of caramel brittle... yup, talking in circles I am. This is one of those flavor descriptions you read but it doesn't really sink in. It says caramel sugar, so technically I should have thought brittle flavor, but instead I start thinking of a really sweet caramel. I was wrong, it happens, that's why we're all here.
This one is unique, I'll give it that. I feel like I should be sharing this with my grandparents in a soda shop. Part of me says I don't like it, but the other part of me is going "dude, this is just funky". It's the kind of flavor you try to share so people can say "whoa, yeah, that's different alright".
Verdict? tastes like cream soda
Buy Again? on a blue moon
