NuGo Slim Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffle: $1.99/Whole Foods

nugoslim_dkchocraspberry (3)I was hoping that this would taste like something that one would find hiding in a corny heart-shaped Valentines’ box, nestled amongst crinkly wrappers and other decadent little chocolate treats. With a name like “Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffle” (and what is up w/ the “p” in Raspberry? I never seem to remember to spell that correctly), I was imagining a delightfully flavorful experience, but instead was rewarded w/ a flavor that more resembled a drugstore cardboard candy that expired once Valentines Day had passed, and not a fresh indulgent taste.

I’m still working thru many of the NuGo bars as they’re not available at Kroger, and I’ve only managed to come across a few of them at Whole Foods. I can’t bring myself to order the singles on their website, so for now I’ll nibble what I’ve got, but if I came across this flavor again, I’d pass. Its texture is too dry, the raspberry and sugars too artificially pronounced, and the “P”, well, it’s not pronounced at all. 2/5
