Meltykiss (dark rum)

Posted in 4.5 Wasabi Pea Rating, Sweet at 12:03 am by Boo

Welcome to December, Junkies, and a whole new list of snacks. A “J-List” of snacks as it were for today starts the showcase month for J-List. Oh I have so many delightful (I hope) snacks to share with you over the coming weekends that I’m doing a small happy squee snacks dance as I type. I might also be a little hopped up on sugar because these fellas are without a doubt, sweet.

We’ve seen the Meltys (Melties?) before in framboise flavor, milk flavor, cacao flavor, and strawberry flavor. And now, I present Dark Rum.

Can I get a yum? Because wow the Meltys do not disappoint. Dark Rum starts like every other Melty; cutely square with a dusting of bitter cocoa over a wonderfully melty semi-sweet truffle like chocolate. In this case, as the name suggests, the truffleesque flavoring is Dark Rum. It’s a very well done dark rum too, so much so that the Guinea Pig who normally does not care for rum rather liked the taste of these.

Of course the Guinea Pig who loves both Rum and Chocolate and was having an exceedingly bad day made off with quite a few of these little fellas. It helped brighten her outlook or at least sooth the pain of the workday away with its yummy rummy chocolaty goodness. How’s that for a testimony?

The only thing that I can think of that would have made these even better is if the cocoa dusting had been a tad heavier. There wasn’t as nice a contrast between the bitter cocoa and the sweet-sweet truffle as there could have been (see the Meltyblend of yore, which did have a substantially dustier truffle square). Still, they are nicely done treats all individually wrapped up in a handsome purple wrapper. I noticed that the box is less fancy and has no inner printing but it does have little embossed snowflakes on the package. Six of one I guess.

All of my Pigs seemed to enjoy the Dark Rum Meltykiss, even my non-rum Pig so I see no reason why Dark Rum can’t get the same rating as most of the other Meltys.

As an extra added bonus, Snack Love has gone and done a review of Meltykiss Dark Rum. I think the Pigs and I liked it a bit better than she did but we may be more booze houndy than she is.

Rating of 4.5 wasabi peas out of a possible 5 wasabi peas.
