Whittaker's White 
Posted: 6 October 2010  Doug's Chocolate Republic  5.0 
Whittaker's White Whittaker's White performed right in the middle. It was neither horrible nor wonderful. In other words, it was average.
Avg price/gram: USD 0.018   Cocoa %: 28  Size: 250g  New Zealand chocolate 
       


Here's a riddle for you.  What's smooth, white, and mediocre all over?   No, it's not Brendon Fraser's toupee-less scalp.   It's Whittaker's definitely average white chocolate bar.   

Whittaker's white bar contains the same content of milk solids (30%) as most of Whittaker's milk chocolate blends, and the cocoa content, at 28%, is almost equal to the cocoa content in the milk blends, too -- although in a white, all this cocoa percentage is contributed by the cocoa butter. Whittaker's milk blends, particularly with nuts, are some of the best around and great value for money. How could their whites go so wrong?  Must I face the appalling truth that I practice reverse discrimination, favoring the dark skinned over the white one?

There is many a chocoholic purist who debates whether we should even call white chocolate "chocolate."  I won't participate in that debate.  Call it chocolate, but in doing so, deliver me the same damned goodness you do with a dark bar.  Don't use the white excuse to defend a lame bar.

I would consider my tasting of Whittaker's White quite fair.  Aussie Dave mailed this one in the same parcel in which he sent a variety of other whites.  I finally realized from this parcel that the reason I'm negatively biased towards white chocolate isn't because I prefer dark chocolate so much more, which I do.  It's that since childhood I've been subjected to so many bad white chocolate bars.  Most manufacturers just can't pull off a splendid white chocolate creation.

Whittaker's White performed right in the middle.  It was neither horrible nor wonderful.   In other words, it was average.  It didn't bowl me over with luscious creaminess, silky flavors, or an amazing snap.  If you were walking around a New Zealand or Australian town and said to yourself, "I could really go for a white chocolate bar right about now," you wouldn't be committing suicide by picking up a Whittaker's White, but you also wouldn't be rewarding yourself.   To send your white-loving taste buds into the stratosphere, ignore this one and opt for a Lindt Lindor White.
