Well, for once I purchased something from IKEA that came as a flat pack but didn't actually require any instructions or DIY. Just coordination, hands and a mouth required for this task which made a pleasant change.
The Chocolate: Well, what can I tell you? This is a dark chocolate with a 70% cocoa content and that's about all the information there is, pretty much like the information they provide with their flat packs....ok I jest, I've always found them very helpful. Fortunately, my Mechanical Engineering degree comes in useful sometimes!

Apologies for the drab brown theme today!
The outer packaging is a bit flimsy and the bar has taken a bit of a knock. The bar is well made having a bright and shiny appearance. It also has a good snap! The aroma from this bar is of strong tobacco. The high cocoa content gives a chalky but, not too dry mouth feel to this bar. The strong initial aroma does not follow through into the flavour and it doesn't really develop further which is a bit of a shame. There are certainly hints of fruit but I'd like a bit more.
What amazes me about this product is the price. In these harsh economic times how do they manage to sell this for £0.95. At these prices you can't really go wrong. So, 9/10 for value for money and 6/10 for flavour. Certainly a good tasting bar of dark chocolate at a most incredible price!
You'll probably never hear me say this again but, I'm going back in for more Swedish chocolate flat packs. To view IKEA Food click here.
