I bought these Bai Nuo chocolate bars while I was in China last fall. Bai Nuo Foods is located in Shanghai… and that’s about all that I know about them.
The picture of the treat on the wrapper is absolutely luscious: a dripping liquid chocolate center surrounded by a crispy cookie/wafer roll, all covered in chocolate with rice crisps and/or peanuts.
The reality? Well, see for yourself:
Not quite as appetizing as the wrapper photo but still not bad. My chocolate center had solidified and the roll of cookie wafer wasn’t as visible, but the rice crisp-studded chocolate shell looked good.
The roll had a great crunch when bitten into. It was dry and crispy with an undertone of nutty peanut butter toastiness.
The chocolate flavor was understated throughout. I think this confection was all about the crisp and crunch. I enjoyed it, though it was a tad too dry for my taste. An OM.
