Influenster Cosmo VoxBox - Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Sea Salt Escape Review

Yay for another Influenster Cosmo VoxBox review. And... yay for chocolate! ;) In this post I'll be making you drool over the Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Sea Escape chocolate bar -- yum!

As for the official description:
  • Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Sea Salt Escape: The decadently rich and creamy milk chocolate in Sea Salt Escape is combined with bursts of sea salt and roasted almonds delivering an epicurean chocolate experience. Experience a moment of timeless pleasure with all natural Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk chocolate. Is your mouth watering too?

Yes, yes my mouth is watering! Too bad I gobbled this yummy chocolate bar up almost a month ago; I could definitely use some right now, haha.

This was a really yummy chocolate bar, much better than I was expecting to be honest. I've always loved Ghirardelli chocolate, but I was a bit unsure how the saltiness would go with sweet chocolate - but it turns out, they go together very well! I was nice enough to share with my mom :) to gather more thoughts for my review. The milk chocolate itself was very creamy and decadent -- a distinctly yummy gourmet kind of taste. There was an abundance of little almond bits in the chocolate, which gave it a great crunch. The flavor of saltiness, this chocolate bar's calling card, was definitely there, but it was not too strong at all -- it added to the complexity of the flavor in a very nice, appealing way. As my mom put it, there is a good balance of sweet and salty here, which is great for satisfying both cravings in one go :)

Another thing that I really like about Ghirardelli chocolate bars is that even the giant ones like this are divided into nice little squares, so you don't have to eat the whole thing at once. Though I certainly was not too concerned about that back when I took these photos, haha (you will notice my artistic cropping of the chocolate bar to hide the fact that I had already polished off almost the entire thing!) I am currently on a post-holiday diet, so it's nice that I could enjoy a little bit of this yummy treat easily and guilt-free.

Overall a very, very yummy chocolate bar, one that I thoroughly enjoyed chowing down on! For review's sake, of course ;)
