We received this curious chocolate in a 45.0g tablet format. This particular flavour variety of dark chocolate is part of Artisan du Chocolat's Fusion bar range - a line developed by head chocolatier Gerard which features some of the most unique flavour combinations we have ever seen (See all of them HERE). The presentation of the range isn't some of Artisan's finest work though the simple cardboard sleeve and cellophane packet combination still give the product a look and feel above that of your everyday chocolate offering. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the inner chocolate which lacked decoration or branding with it's very basic blocked segregation.
Overall whilst my enjoyment of this chocolate was probably more rooted in my intrigue of how it might develop next taste wise it was still at the end of the day a product I enjoyed tasting. Whilst I can't say that it will go down as one of my favourite chocolates ever, I hope I have managed to articulate the amazing experience it delivered in terms of it's uniqueness. The taste, should you choose to try it, will be unlike anything you have ever had before. The tobacco element is by no means a gimmick and is highly evident and forthcoming in both aroma and taste. Whilst this may not strike you as a natural flavour combination it is one well worth checking out if it sparks your intrigue. It's a chocolate experience like none other I have ever come across - we would love to hear what you make of it @Chocmission.
