Ferrero Rondnoir

I came across this new version of Ferrero chocolate at CVS.

Ferrero Rondnoir (dark chocolate!)

Since Ferrero Rocher is one of my favorite snacks. I've just gotta check it out. (I know, people in Hong Kong overly use Ferrero Rocher as a new year gift and I sometimes think it's boring just looking at the package. But I still crave it once in a while.)

This is how it looks like.


I was curious whether it was the same except changing it to dark choclate.
But the answer is NO.

The outside is not crushed hazelnut and there is NO whole hazelnut in the middle.

As the description reads:

"Rondnoir chocolates are a unique combination of a dark chocolate cream surrounding a "black pearl" of fine dark chocolate, within a delicate, crisp wafer...topped with crunchy dark chocolate morsels."

Personal opinion? It's good quality dark chocolate that allows you to taste it in different textures. Better think of it as a different product than to compare it with the original. about defining it as a truffle with a wafer coating?

Perhaps my biased preference for hazelnut and nutella is rooted in my taste bud. All in all I think my hand would still reach out for Rocher rather than Rondnoir.
