The chocolate she returned with is made by Studentská Pecat, which means "Student Stamp". Since all of their literature is in Slovak, I can't read any of it, so the best I can tell you is that they are part of the of the Nestlé empire, which I've of course reviewed before. And their chocolate is loaded up with stuff, like nuts and fruits. So unlike most of my reviews, I really can't tell you cocoa percentages, or any other details, since they are mysteries to me too!
|Studentská Dark Chocolate and Milk Chocolate.|
The milk was a decent milk chocolate, and it was loaded up with nuts (peanuts?) and I think some raisins. It reminded me a bit of a Mr. Goodbar, as there was just sooo many chunks of peanut inside.
The dark also had the same plentiful chunks of peanuts, but then also a dried fruit that I thought might be currants. The picture makes me think they might have actually been dried cherries. They were a bit sweet and a bit tart and chewy. The texture of this bar was really interesting, as you you had the chewy dried fruit, the crunchy nuts, and then ... something that sorta seemed like licorice pieces embedded in it. Although the flavor wasn't quite anise-like. It turns out that this was chunks of "jelly"? Such a strange eating experience.
In each of these bars, there were far more nuts, fruit, and other filler than actual chocolate, so it was best to think of them as candy bars, not chocolate exactly.
I also tried a special limited edition holiday bar, with bits of jelly pear and peanuts. I again liked the crunch from the nuts, was intrigued by the jelly bits, and thought the chocolate was creamy and better than American "default" chocolate brands. I do enjoy these candy bars.
