Still the same, even if the name is not.

I recently re-reviewed ALDI’s Schogetten chocolate. Here’s a re-review of ALDI’s Choceur chocolate. Both re-reviews are prompted by a recent comment to an older post mentioning an absence of the hazelnut variations at that reader’s ALDI. I’m happy to state that the hazelnut and other variations of the Choceur chocolates are still available – at least at my local ALDI.
It’s a very humbling experience to go back 3 years and read something you’ve written. WHAT did I mean back then?
My original review of this product was positive. And it still is positive. Although I like it a little less now. The chocolate doesn’t seem to taste as dark. It’s more of a milk chocolate taste now even though the package lists “50% cocoa”. Maybe it’s the hazelnuts and crisps that dilute the chocolate taste? It could just be me becoming more of a chocolate purist over time.
Aside from my perception of the product taste, there are a couple of other differences. The name of this variation has changed from Creme Filled Mini Chocolate Bars to Dark Hazelnut Crisp. The product descriptions are similar. Of note, the old package says “semisweet” and this one says “dark” chocolate. There’s also a UTZ Certified stamp on the package now. This certification refers to how the cocoa was grown. See Wiki to learn more about UTZ.
One thing that hasn’t changed is the price. It’s still $1.99 for a 7 ounce package of 11 bars.
