Just over three years ago our fellow snack reviewing friends over at FoodStuffFinds (See HERE) were kind enough to send our site owner Jim a tin of this rather unique Tabasco Chocolate (Review). Back in 2012 Jim saw to award the chocolate a 7.3 out of 10 rating on the @ChocMission rating scale. Now here in 2015 and with the team expanded we decided to give the chocolate yet another run through the @ChocMission rating system to see if Jim was just being kind - surely a chocolate with added Tobasco sauce couldn't be the real deal!? Could it!?
In order to reconduct our initial review we first had to find this chocolate which believe us was no easy task. As a product of the USA we finally managed to get hold of it in a local US food importer. That said we had to pay through the nose for it. Yes we ended up paying £1.70 for just a 28.0g bar. Now we understand it has an added novelty factor to it's price tag but damn this was one expensive chocolate per gram. At least the packaging looked pretty sleek with it's plastic red wrapper nicely concealing the bar inside.
Overall we think Jim's initial review was probably spot on in terms of how it scored (we aren't sucking up!). The quality of the dark chocolate was average at best but the Tabasco element did bring something to the party to make it a proposition that was delivered on. If you are looking at this chocolate with a eye on trying a high quality dark chocolate it's probably going to leave you disappointed but if it's a chocolate with a novelty factor you are after then it's one worth your time. Just watch out for the heat factor!!
7.2 out of 10
