Another delicious UTZ certified chocolate bar from Aldi at a bargain price.
Actually, I had completely forgotten about this bar, but on a whim bought one the other day. What a delightful surprise! So texturally balanced and satisfying.
Weighing in at 7.05 ounces it has 7 generous servings. The 50% dark chocolate is a little sweet, but not overwhelmingly so, with 10 grams of added sugar per portion.
Not only is this super crunchy and chock full of roasted fresh hazelnuts, it’s very attractive to look at. The velvety texture of the chocolate provides a perfect foil for the nuts.
Over the years, I have found most dark bars, even dark milk bars, last well past their expiration date; however, when it comes to bars with nuts it’s best to adhere to the dates as the nuts can get rancid. Thankfully, most Aldi chocolates have an expiration date that’s, at least, six months into the future.
Not only is this a really yummy treat but it provides 10% of your iron, 4 grams of fiber with 160 calories. Considering it’s a chocolate bar, that’s fairly healthy.
