Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana?

Ack, sorry for the wonky picture, but alas, the cell phone is wonk-inclined.

So I love me some Lara Bars and was excited to see them come out with the Jocalat line, which are all chocolate-flavored to some degree or another. I tried the regular Chocolate Jocalat flavor some time ago and loved it - can't beat satisfying the inner chocoholic with organic cocoa mass (as opposed to Snickers...). Today I ripped into the Jocalat Chocolate Orange flavor, expecting great things since this is one of my flavorite combos, but it just tastes...boozey! (?)

The bar gets its orange flavor from, wait for it, "organic orange flavor," according to the ingredient list. Now if by "organic orange flavor" they meant "Grand Marnier," I wouldn't be so mystified right now. I'm not one to let something silly like a fermenting-food taste keep me from eating a Lara Bar, but it is with a heavy heart that I have no choice but to declare the Jocalat Chocolate Orange not-delicious.

Lest you be worried about my happiness, you needn't fret - I had an apple to round out my snack and it was, in fact, quite-delicious.

boozey - yuck. I've never been a big fan of orange and chocolate together. I prefer my chocolate plain or with mint. :)
