Now, the neat thing about this take on the Vosges Naga line is that it uses dark chocolate, so our vegan or otherwise dairy-free friends can enjoy it. And this time, it’s not just a bar. This time, that 62% cacao dark chocolate surrounds dried mango, and is dusted with curry powder, which adds visual interest to each piece.
The pieces aren’t Vosges best work, most notably because the mango is a bit tough.
A lot tough, actually. Tough enough that the chocolate breaks away from it, ruining the combination of chocolate, curry, and mango and forcing the consumer to eat it all in separate bits. That all said, the mango flavor is delightful – tart and sweet – it’s just that the texture makes it difficult to enjoy. It’s unfortunate, because the flavor combination has serious potential.
Have you ever eaten really tough dried fruit? What was it?
