This is the last of the Michel & Augustin Petits Carres bars I bought while out shopping with my sister. The last two bars I tired the Dark Chocolate and the Hazelnut Dark Chocolate were unimpressive to be honest. The cookies crust bottom was hard and sometimes overcook to the point of it looking burnt. The chocolate center is flavorless and strangely gummy. So as I prepped for this review, I’ll admit, I wasn’t excited. I don’t like “being a hater” and panning bad candy. I try to look for the good in everything. These are just…in this strange middle ground. They’re not horrible, not to the point where I gag and spit it out. That’s usually the signal for a “Not Worth It” or “Inedible” review on the blog here. No, these are just a good idea executed terribly.
So today is the Caramel Milk Chocolate flavor. Same format, just different flavors. This is the only milk chocolate one I had, as the other two were dark. I’m curious to see if there’s any difference.
Much like the Hazelnut Dark Chocolate, the cookie edges here are darker and somewhat burnt/over cooked looking. They’re also incredibly hard to break, which is annoying since I hate have a crumb explosion every time I wanted to take a piece. The chocolate center tasted more chocolatey and sweet. I didn’t really taste any caramel. I did get a nice flavor of salt toward the end like the dark chocolate one, and I am unsure if it came from the cookies crust or the caramel.
This bar was better than the other two, but still not enough to redeem them all for me. Again, it’s a good idea, just not terribly well done. It’s mediocre at best, and now I know these just dn’t do it for me.
