I can’t say I was ready to rush out and buy this new seasonal candy bar from Stewart’s when I first heard about them. But I do buy a carton of eggnog each year to sip during Christmas baking, so I guess it was inevitable that I was going to give one a shot given the chance. Popping in for some milk recently was that chance.
Premium Milk Chocolate with Eggnog. I prefer dark chocolate, by a lot, but eggnog filling probably is a better match with a quality, creamy milk chocolate.
That’s basically what Stewart’s has given us here. It’s a tasty enough milk chocolate. The bar is divided into two rows of smaller pieces, each filled with a thin, nougat-type filling. A bit stretchy, not quite flowing/leaky thin, but not chewy. And I’m pleasantly surprised to say that this has a really decent eggnog flavor. The first bite will likely bring a queer look to your face. Honestly, each time I eat a square, my first reaction is ‘huh? What am I eating?’ After a second, the cinnamon flavor sets in and my tongue identifies that creamy, distinctive eggnog flavor. For a candy bar filling, I’d say it’s a really good representation. And, as mentioned, you really get a good amount of cinnamon flavor.
I can definitely recommend this bar. Although if you don’t like eggnog, it may not be for you.
