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.
Your Zotter tasting experiences sound amazing. I haven’t yet had the pleasure of tasting Zotter, but am looking forward to it.
Thanks for the look inside.
It was an education… I’m just grateful they sent me the the tame bars!!
ROoh i think the pineapple and cashew one sounds quite intriguing..i love pineapple and cashews..but together..in chocolate? Ive tried the fish and marshmallow zotter..not really a fan of that bar lol!
I have a feeling you’re going to dig this bar. The pineapple is distinct and the cashew is like a praline – well refined so the pineapple is an addition to a praline with a light nutty flavour without too much of an overwhelmingly distinct flavour 🙂
