See's Dark Rum Raisin

My newest sample of See’s Candies’ September limited edition candy has arrived! This month’s flavor is Dark Rum Raisin, and I’m really excited to try it considering how yummy last months flavor was.

Rum raisin is a flavor I don’t get to have too terribly often. I’m not a big drinker of alcohol, so my experience with actual rum is fairly limited. There’s been a few tastes of rum raisin ice cream in my childhood, a piece of fruitcake here and there (my Dad is a fan of them), and then of course a sip from drinks offered by friends.

The candy is rectangular, with a beautiful drank rippling of chocolate on top. It smells of the sweet dark chocolate and no hint of the flavor inside.

My first bite reveals a creamy, beige colored interior studded with raisins and candied cherries. The flavor is of rum right away, with it’s warm, buttery, alcoholic taste. There’s not burn here thankfully, but the flavor is authentic as far as I can tell. The raisins and cherries are tart and fruity like I expect them to be. The chocolate serves to round out the candy with its deep, rich, slightly sweet chocolatey flavors and keeps the rum from being too intense. It’s beautifully balanced and I find myself enjoying it a lot.

If you’re a fan of rum raisin flavors I highly suggest you seek these out. It’s a great take on this flavor in a nice, compact small dose. The Black Forest Truffle from last month still holds as my favorite so far, but this piece is also a delight to indulge in, and I appreciate how I am now more familiar with this flavor.

CONTEST: I have another two gift certificates from See’s to give away! It’s for one pound of these chocolate, and can be used in their stores or by phone at (800-895-7337). So how do you enter? Please comment on this post by Friday the 24th at noon, EST and share your favorite See’s flavor if you have one. I’ll choose a winner randomly from those who enter. Best of luck!

  2. Ditto on Eliza’s comment…I’m all about the Scotchmallow.  But I love Haagen Dazs Rum Raisin and these sound incredible!
