William Curley Dark Caramel Mou Bar

If you are like me and you are one of those people who search for the perfect textured caramel bar, look no further as this Dark Caramel Mou Bar by William Curley exactly hits the spot. It is neither too runny and soft nor too hard and brittle that it breaks your teeth but just melts with the perfect chew inside the mouth!

The bar itself consists of 2 separate pieces wrapped in luxurious looking gold foil and each is made up of a soft caramel, coated in Amedei dark chocolate and sprinkled with cacao nibs..yum. This definitely is a caramel chocolate bar of another level; if I had to describe it, it would be like taking a long delicious ride along a smooth sumptuous caramel river that you just never want to end, Dairy Milk Caramel eat your heart out! There was something about this bar that just screamed Willy Wonka to me! I don't know whether it was the gold wrapping or whether the texture of it that reminded me of the taking a long dreamy ride along Willy Wonka's chocolate waterfall river; either way I know this bar is good!

The texture is just of another class, you don't know whether to bite it and chew it slowly letting its caramelness enrobe your mouth or just to let it completely melt into a sumptuous mess all over your tongue! Either way the caramel provides an almost warming sensation on melting providing deep notes of toffee, that are subtly sweet but never over powering.

This paired with the deep Amedei dark chocolate provides a perfect counter balance, with the thin chocolate coating giving a slightly, almost fruity edge that comes through before it melts away and reveals the sweeter caramel innards. The only problem with this bar is that it seemed to be over as soon as it had begun, I just wish there could have been some more for me to enjoy! Nevertheless the fact that it is split into 2 smaller bars does give you the option to eat one now..and save one for later..or not in the case of, like me, you just simply find it too delicious!

  2. Yum yum yum yum.

    I love the delight of finding an excellent caramel bar. My most recent success was last month, with Sweeteeth's Sea is for Caramel bar. A bit more liquidy caramel, but it won me over on whimsy as well.
