Mixed Raspberry Bullets - And for those that love raspberry licorice, the mixed milk and white chocolate raspberry bullets are available.
Every single person who tasted this product enjoyed it - both the milk and the white chocolate flavours. Even I, someone who does not usually go for milk chocolate, ate three of them. (The white chocolate bullets were another issue altogether; I ate quite a number of them. I do have a weakness for white - or very dark - chocolate. I just don't much like the colours in between.) But this particular milk chocolate has a nice cocoa aftertaste with none of the sickly sweetness I normally associate with this variety. Possibly the unique chocolate blend has something to do with it - who knows? All I can say is that I would eat these again.
Although I had several, there was plenty left for everyone else. As with the other products in this range, there is a generous amount in each packet meaning that there is plenty to share. Not one person found anything to complain about; rather, it was quite the opposite, with everyone asking for another helping. All but one found the price was reasonable given the number of bullets in the packet. And the individual bullets were a good size for grown-up mouths.
We all thought the ratio of chocolate to licorice was ideal. The natural raspberry taste of the licorice stood out, but was not enough to mask the flavour of the chocolate surround. I even tried one of each type at the same time and found that this was just as successful; I could still discern the two different chocolate flavours, although there was now a slight mocha after-taste to them. Altogether this is a sophisticated combination that will no doubt appeal to a wide range of ages.
There were no children present, but I think ours would all enjoy this product too. They have all had raspberry licorice in the past and every one of them, like all children, enjoys chocolate, so I can safely say that I will be trying some with them too. The adults all agreed that they liked them well enough to try them again, so I am sure the children will get to test them sooner or later.
I can see this product being a success for various occasions - they look good, they taste good, and as far as I could see the chocolate holds its shape successfully at room temperature. There is nothing worse than finger food that dribbles all over your hand (and clothing!) when you attempt to eat it. I would serve them on a platter with mixed nuts and mandarin segments or fresh berries (in particular, raspberries in season), or just in individual dishes for people to help themselves.
