Zotter Cashew and Pineapple
Fear. It was fear that I felt when I got the box. I saw the distinctive yellow label on the white box. The artwork hinting at the unknown inside. It was a white box. An innocent white box… and yet the first thing I did was to put it aside and ponder for a moment whether I want to open it.
I knew I had to review whatever was inside and so I opened the box. I had no idea what I would find inside. I feared what I would find inside. I had heard the stories, seen the reviews and I still cannot believe that I’ll be able to eat it. I did eat that peanut butter, watercress and tomato sandwich that Doreen Valiente made for me but that was different…
So I opened it and found four bars inside. Four mysteries inside. Four new experiences. Have I saved the best for last? The worst? The scariest? What could this final of the four be? Is it funny-tasting? Is it safe? What could it be? This is pineapple and cashews. How bad can that be?
I can clearly taste the pineapple here and there is absolutely some chunks presumably of pineapple. The cashew seems to be a slightly crunchy background note as the pineapple takes front and centre stage. Each bite gets you a clear pineapple flavour with chewy pineapple bits.
Again this is not one of the scary challenging flavour bars. Pineapple is a safe flavour and so is cashew. It’s probably why I took a bite. And then another. And another. Granted pineapple isn’t something you get in a standard bar but ketchup seems a lot more challenging to me. I’m not sure I could do that.
