Sweet Critique & Giveaway: Wonka Chocolates

Wonka ChocolatesI have never hidden my love for chocolate here on Sweet Phenomena.  Quite honestly, I believe it is as close to a cure-all as you can get.  Well, chocolate and delicious lemon drops and margaritas…  This is why I was so very excited when I was given the option to review {eat!!!!} Wonka Exceptionals.

My family was able to try the Chocolate Waterfall Bar, Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bar, and two new varieties:  Fantabulous Fudge & Triple Dazzle Caramel {my FAVORITE!!!}.

To give these uber-fantastic bars the proper attention they deserve, I’ll go bar by bar:

  • Chocolate Waterfall Bar – I personally am not a big fan of white chocolate.  I liked the bar, though, and Babydoll loved it!  One of my favorite things about all the Exceptionals is the actual bar designs, and the Waterfall doesn’t disappoint.  I mean, take a look at the picture above; the Waterfall is in the foreground.  Doesn’t that look fun?  I believe the “official” description is “milk and white chocolate cascading together.”  Cascading.  Now that’s some serious word love right there.
  • Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bar – I was excited to try this bar since my absolute favorite chocolate bar of all time is one that contains toffee and almonds.  This bar has chunks of toffee, crispy cookie pieces, and peanuts inside.  Yum.  I love the way the chunks add great texture to the smooth chocolate.  I like having that crunch there.  And they sure weren’t stingy with the toffee pieces.  Win.  Chocolate with Milk
  • Fantabulous Fudge Bar – Fudge is yummy.  Fudge inside chocolate=double yummy.  This says it best:  “…like your own personal bar of truffles.”  Nobody else’s truffles.  Just yours.  A thing of beauty.  These were pretty sweet, but in a rich yummy way.  The fudge was nice and smooth and one square really gave you a good hit of chocolate that satisfied.
  • Triple Dazzle Caramel Bar – As I’ve already mentioned, this one is my absolute favorite.  There’s a distinct possibility that at any point caramel will surpass chocolate on my scale of sweet yumminess.  I love caramel.  And I really love salted caramel.  Triple Dazzle Caramel is filled with surprisingly good caramel, with a “dazzle” of sea salt.  I don’t say that to imply Wonka would make sorry caramel, but in all the caramel-filled candy bars I’ve ever had, I’ve never really found “worthy” caramel.  There’s is freaking delicious.  This thing was really, really good.  Perfect amount of salt.  Double win.

Wonka doesn’t just give all the fun to the candy either.  They’ve got a cool site and an uber-cool YouTube channel: The Imagination Room.  I played on this thing for quite a while…  Fun!!

Sure, making good chocolate is great.  But creating an experience, a truly unique and fun brand makes me far more likely to buy your stuff.  Kudos to Wonka!!

After we ate our supply of chocolate, Babydoll and I quickly ran out to our local stores to find more.  We now know exactly where to go to get our stash…

I really can’t express how much I enjoyed working with them; it was a blast!

So, I’ve told you how awesome these things were.  Wouldn’t you like some of your own?

True Confessions:  I was provided with chocolate for this review.  It was fun and awesome and amazing.  It didn’t affect my review, though.  Only honest opinions here.
