Ghirardelli Chocolate Review- Cosmo Vox Box

So, this scrumptious looking chocolate bar was one of the items in the Cosmo VoxBox 2012, complimentary from Influenster. I tried saving this for as long as I could, I really did, but...well. Let's just say this chocolate bar didn't get to live to see it's second day. That should be a foretelling on how amazing this product was. (;

First off, I love how fancy, yet simple the packaging is. For a moment, it made me feel as if I was being treated with the most divine chocolate in existence- Which actually, is not too far from the truth. The packaging shows a simple image of how a piece of the bar looks- chocolate with almonds sneaking a peek out the corners of it- All natural. Ohohoho.

At the back of the box is a convenient 'tear here' prompt, which allows the content to be easily pulled out.

The chocolate is concealed in nice, thin, golden wrap. And by thin, I mean very, very, very thin and flimsy feeling. Like Aluminum foil maybe? Silly as it may be, I actually awed at it for a few minutes, and for a while debated if I should actually tear through it like a maniac or not. I did.

Maybe I fail at opening packaging, but I managed to destroy half the bar in my attempts to gently take it out. Oops. Ah well, my sister snatched up all the pieces that managed to break off.

The bar itself is pretty thin, but each square piece is rather large. Creamy chocolate meets a very distinct and noticeable almond and nutty flavor. The almond is not too crunchy, as most nutty bars are. And as someone who is not a big fan of almonds or nuts in general, I found this to be bearable. (Hehe, found it absolutely cute to see almonds, quite literally, sticking half out of the squares).

Anyways! The sea salt isn't noticeable at all, that, or I don't know exactly how strong sea salt is! Yet, there is a small salty note as you go deeper into the bar, however I noticed that the more saltier chocolate pieces were those at the bottom rows.

Overall, I would say that I loved this chocolate bar (and so did my sister). Would I buy it again? If I saw it, yes! It's a great reward to treat yourself from time to time. Would I recommend it? Yes x2! I would just say that some others claimed that this bar was too salty for their liking. So keep that in mind if you are thinking about trying it.

*NOTE* I received these products complimentary from Influenster.
