I was looking at the leftover clearance Valentines Day candy at Dollar Tree last night and I noticed that a lot of it said Chocolate "flavored" chocolate. Have you ever had Chocolate "flavored" chocolates? Did they actually taste halfway decent?

Well lilybug, Is there any other kind? LOL I would like to know the owner of that shop. Even if there was such a thing as chocolate flavoured chocolates, I'd say that they would pretty much taste the same, but since I haven't had any yet, I am not certain that my opinion is a 100 percent correct.

Well this is the first time I have heard and encountered such kind of flavor. Chocolate flavored chocolate. In most cases, what I see, is chocolate with nuts, chocolate with almonds, etc.. Wow, this is something unique don't you think. Most likely this chocolate is of very good quality that they repeated the word chocolate. Hahahaha!. Well, whatever it may be, I think it would taste good.

Uhm I fear it could be the opposite. If the only thing that is similar to chocolate is the flavour then that makes it less excellent surely?

I passed on buying it. Seemed just strange to me.

Is this something new to you there? Here in Italy we are all very aware of the word 'flavour' and it usually denotes a product which is very similar to what it is claiming it might be but in fact it is very, very far off. The word' chocolate would catch the consumer's eys first and they would buy it thinking theyhave a product containing chocolate only to find out later (if they take the time to read) that all it has in the way of chocolate is/might be the flavour.

I think you are right. I know I have had chocolate before that tasted more like wax than chocolate.

So sad that people think they are also saving money when buying these products. There are also health risks involved if too many are eaten. There are very strict rules and regulations about ingredients here in Europe for several years now trying to remove these cons from the market. Thanks lilybug!

I've never heard of chocolate flavoured chocolate but I have heard of bacon flavoured chocolate a shop chain in the UK were selling this over christmas and it apparently sold very well!

It tasted good with or without an egg sunny-side up?

I have heard of chocolate covered bacon and candy bars that had chopped up bacon in them.

Does that mean they were fake Chocolates? Like having "mango flavored drink" but no mango was actually used, only some chemicals that made the drink taste "like" mango? I've never had any of those. I kind of prefer dark chocolate because it's healthy, and if it said that there really isn't real chocolate in it then I doubt if I'd buy it because it would ruin the whole idea of "chocolate diet" :P Yeah, it's the kind of diet that I follow. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Ha! Even reading that is funny. I don't know how they taste, never had them. Labeled like that I'd tend to steer clear.

I'm sure they'll taste fine, it's just made in a much cheaper way to be able to sell it for $1 or less.
