Dove Desserts Promises- Tiramisu
Every once and a while I see something in the store that makes me squeal like a "tween" at a Hannah Montana concert...
And yes, seeing these Dove Promises did that. Maybe, I shouldn't admit things like that so openly.
Anyway, we all know Gigi loves her some Tiramisu. I will try just about any bastardized version out there. Unfortunately, most of them turn out to be not so good. But I am always hoping. I am going to keep hoping.
How did the Dove turn out?
The aroma was not promising (no pun intended). It smelled like cheap, tiramisu flavored supermarket coffee- you know the one's lined up the you grind yourself. Also not encouraging is the face that the dark chocolate of my Promise was dull and starting to bloom. Biting into the Promise the chocolate crumbles and the center oozes a caramel colored cream. The cream is smooth and sweet- but it it tastes like sweetened sour milk.
Sadly, the whole effect is not that far off from just munching on some of those coffee beans we were just talking about.
Even the chocolate it's self was, well it was not so good. I normally am very fond of the Dove Dark chocolate promises but the chocolate here was dry and bitter. I am seriously wondering if I just got a bad box because I just don't want to believe that Dove could be this disappointing.
The other new addiction to the Promises line is Banana's Foster so I am going to be reviewing those shortly. Here's to hoping those are better!
