Godiva Milk Chocolate with Praline Nougatine 
Posted: 5 January 2011    7.0 
Godiva Milk Chocolate with Praline Nougatine Before tasting this bar, I would've assumed that any bar that has pralines added would go up a notch or two. Wrong I was. As I bit into this bar, I was reminded of the pain and suffering I endured while eating the Green & Black's Butterscotch bar. It really is possible to mess up a sure thing.

I was expecting to love this Godiva bar, the last in a package of six I picked up for exorbitant prices at the Suvarnabhumi Airport duty free shop.  I'd already sampled the Godiva Milk and was amazed how good it was for using everyday low-endish ingredients posing as prime ones.  I'm not excusing Godiva for cutting corners yet still charging as if the corners hadn't been cut.  I am praising them for using such skillful mirrors that it looks like the corners are still there.  Nice deception!

Pralines in chocolate are something special.   Before tasting this bar, I would've assumed that any bar that has pralines added would go up a notch or two.  Wrong I was.  As I bit into this bar, I was reminded of the pain and suffering I endured while eating the Green & Black's Butterscotch. It really is possible to mess up a sure thing.  I have a friend who screws up every relationship he's ever in, regardless of the quality of the woman.  Hollywood often screws up can't miss concepts with mega-stars. Godiva doesn't score a home run on this praline bar. The praline addition tasted too sweet, like that miserable honeycomb flavor I had in the G & B Butterscotch. Fortunately, the Godiva milk chocolate itself was well appreciated in my mouth. 

I am being a tad hard on the bar. It wasn't like I entered hell. I was just expecting so much from the praline and nougatine. Imagine you're going on a blind date arranged by your friend, and the girl has been described to you as a clone of Sofia Loren in her prime.  Instead, the girl who shows up looks like a girl in a B-grade porno flick.  With a praline bar, you're still doing pretty well at the end of the day.
