  • Dark chocolate is delicious AND healthy, of course, as long as it is prepared in such a way that it is »smooth« and rich enough for the palate – or it can have a somewhat »flat« taste
  • In my opinion, this is a rather mediocre product parading as an upscale delicacy

      Ferrero Rocher, the famous Italian candy factory, is a funny creature… They have aggressive marketing, including many – often slightly tacky - TV advertisements featuring »posh« people in very lush surroundings. And the packaging of their products is, no doubt, appealing to the eye.

      So, judging by the design, Ferrero Rocher’s products should be top-notch.

      But are they really?

      Their last


      product, the Rond noir (pronounced “rown-nwahr”, meaning »the black & round one«), packaged in dark brown boxes, with each individual bonbon wrapped in copper brown paper with glimmering accents, is harnessing the latest fashion of dark chocolate consumption, widely extolled as being a much healthier alternative to usual (»milk«) chocolate.

      Dark chocolate is delicious AND healthy, of course, as long as ...


      • it is prepared in such a way that it is »smooth« and rich enough for the palate – or it can have a somewhat »flat« taste.

        The taste of the dark, almost black-brown cream filling in the Rond noirs isn’t exactly »flat«, but it does not have all the creamy richness that one would expect. It doesn’t present enough of a

        contrast to the crunchy outer (wafer) shell.

        In my opinion, this is a rather mediocre product parading as an upscale delicacy. If you are thinking of giving it as a present to someone, I would suggest to go with Lindt chocolates instead – or even with some of the Ferrero Rocher’s earlier products, like the classic »rock« (the one wrapped in golden paper).
