Bradley's: First Bite

I suppose that after my post from this weekend, it’s no secret that I work in the nuclear industry, though I’ve hinted at it before. For example, you may remember my trip to Oak Ridge, TN last month. Nobody goes there for vacation. Or work, even, unless they’re nuclear folk.

Today, though, I’m not going to talk about anything heavy like nuclear safety. I’m going to talk about the chocolates I got from Bradley’s when I was in Oak Ridge.

As you can see, the nine-piece box offered a nice assortment, with no repeated chocolates. I like this.

I also like giandujas, so I elected to start with the dark and milk gianduja piece.

The milk portion of this chocolate was quite sweet and soft, and features a faint hazelnut flavor, while the dark portion is a bit firmer and offers very little hazelnut flavor. The chocolate flavor isn’t very intense in either, but the texture is quite pleasing. When eaten together, the milk and dark layers blend together nicely to offer a bit of hazelnut flavor and a sweetness that isn’t quite overwhelming. It was a nice chocolate, but nothing outstanding.

Do you like chocolates with milk and dark layers?


  1. That layered chocolate actually sounds pretty awesome to me! :D Dark is my favorite, and milk is my second, so I think that I'd like something like that!

  2. agreed, layered chocolate sounds great! I like both milk and dark for different reasons, might as well put them together!

  3. Oh my gosh! It's my favorite. I love love love layered chocolate. Seriously lets have a layered chocolate party.

  4. I love how all the chocolates in that box look really different... I feel like that's kinda unusual. Well, they all look super delicious so I guess that's a similarity.

  5. YUM! I love chocolate of all kinds, I dont discriminate. Layers adds a new depth though :-) Great to meet you this weekend-lookingforward to reading about yummy eats!

  6. Well done you for sometimes just focusing on the chocolate :) Must say this particular chocolate doesn't excite me, but am looking forward to the rest of the box!

  7. Oh my goodness, those are beautiful.So yummy!

    And totally random, but Oak Ridge is only an hour away from Crossville where I spent the first 10 years of my life! :)
