Just a little extra excitement in a candy that is pretty special but not as pricey as the really high end stuff.
I really like Dove Dark Chocolate. The almond bits add a real burst of the almond flavor, but because each candy is really packed with almond bits you do lose the smooth texture in your mouth that the plain ones give. As much as I like almonds, one of the best things about the Dove chocolates is their smooth texture, so I’m surprising myself by saying that I like these less well than the plain ones.
Each candy is wrapped in foil, and is 8 grams. They say a serving is 5 pieces, worth 210 calories, 120 of which is from fat. We find that most days we can be happy with 2 pieces, so that’s only 80 calories.
The wrappers are a little added plus as well. The outsides do tell you the kind of chocolate in very fine print in case you mix their kinds in a bowl and forget which color is which. Each one is imprinted with an upbeat or encouraging saying on the inside. For example: “Miracles aren’t limited to the holidays” The sayings may be tied to the current holiday season, such as that one is, but they may be generic for any occasion. These ones were in a holiday package.
The other thing I like about the wrappers is that they are real foil and can be recycled.
