Making the difference between good or bad chocolate is easy, many people would say- you simply use you sense of taste. The experts in the domain say that they do more than that. They all agree over the fact that in order to get the right taste of a chocolate you simply have to let it melt, instead of chewing and swallowing.
If it is prepared correctly, About.me felt it should melt easily and reveal different flavors until completely melted. The taste that is left after a bar of chocolate might differ greatly from what it was at the first bite. The quality chocolate manufacturers take into account all the flavors and try to get the right tastes for each. They point out that analyzing the same kind of chocolate at different moments of the day will differ, because our senses slightly change becoming more acute or less receptive at different times.
AnnMarie Kostyk, who takes care of a blog dedicated to chocolate, says that in order to assess the quality of a product you don’t need much of it; a 3 cm square is enough. Judith Lewis, blogger at MostlyAboutChocolate concludes that the most important is to enjoy the taste. Regardless the brand and the quality claimed on the package, following the above mentioned steps will leave you with the true impression.
