The first piece? Delicious. They were still warm, the chocolate was melty and drippy and gooey and stuck in my cheeks in the most delightful way. Then a big glass of cold milk chased it down, and my tastebuds were livin' like they were back in the teenage days.
Then the next day. The bars had set. I cut one square. Let me be clear: I used a knife to saw one square. It was quite...firm. Brick-ish. I, with great reluctance, gave one to my two kids who are walking around with thousands of dollars of hardware in their mouths. Fortunately, no hardware was damaged in the consumption.

I think it may be highly overrated.
And I think that's about all I have to say about that.
