1- Appears to be a med. to light dark chocolate. Upon breaking it into pieces you can see a little white from ramen noodles.
2- It tastes like chocolate. Duh right? Sadly though that is all it tastes like. Now there were three of us ( Sarah, Kristin, and I) taking this test and we all agreed. Just chocolate.
3- Yep, just chocolate.
4- After taste of chocolate.
Let down by the breakdown? Well welcome to how we felt. Don't get me wrong we all agreed it was good chocolate perhaps even great but lets face it. It is called 'RAMEN NOODLE CHOCOLATE' which could have really been something. Think about that dark saucy fluid that you can make with the ramen powder and the depth of those notes with their high sodium content. That sort of thing could really be playful with the flavor complexities of chocolate but no. Apparently I had read to much into the idea and not the label. This is literally a chocolate with a tiny amount of ramen noodle. The noodle didn't provide even a textural play it was just there. Was this a let down? For me yes, it was safe. Is there a market? I am guessing that this is perfect for Californians who like they risks with a giggle. 'Oh aren't we daft? We have college kid sustenance in our high end chocolates! Gafa!'. Well, that is how I imagine it.....
