I don’t going in our local B&M Store very often. I’m not sure why I don’t but after my recent haul from my last visit, it is has very definitely putting itself on the Foodstufffinds' visiting list. Amongst thing I did see and buy, including well priced import choccies, were these new Dark Rolos hanging on a shelf. It was literally just these Rolos left, all the other bags had gone. I grabbed this pack quickly as I spotted someone else looking at it, but I had the last one. I suppose that is a bit clichéd given the marketing phrase about sharing your last Rolo, but these were all mine! ;-)
When I looked at these Rolos I was surprised by how dark they looked out of the bag. I know they are the new Dark edition, but as the packet said they only had 45% cocoa I wasn’t expecting the colour change to be so dramatic. They were almost black.
I liked these Rolos, the chocolate was noticeably darker tasting, and the sweet caramel went really well with it. It was a good mix of flavours. The stronger chocolate made these easy to eat for me, they weren’t sickly even after eating more than I should have. Don’t get me wrong they were still sweet just more chocolatey too, like an enhanced flavoured Rolo.
I know I write about new and limited editions of product that aren’t that exciting or creative, and this may not be pushing the limits of product development, but I can’t argue with one important fact, they are really nice darker! Having said that there is another Rolo product that is newly out, and I’ve added it to my Ocado shop - keep an out for Friday when there will be more news about that!
