Triple Chocolate Whipple. Has a wonderfully Wonka-esque name, doesn't it? Nestle's Wonka chocolate range, released earlier this year, includes this scrumdiddlyumptious 170g block. I reviewed the Caramel Hat Trick variety last month.
Dressed in a smart maroon-coloured cardboard packaging, and with yellow and white text, Triple Chocolate Whipple is a milk chocolate block that contains, as the name suggests, three types of chocolate filling: choc fudge, choc sauce and choc cookie. The moulding of the block is based on the pipes of the Wonka chocolate factory, and also include a round circle with the trademark Wonka W. The unique shape of the moulding means that there is probably a little bit less of the filling than if the pieces were moulded in a standard pillow shape.
The back of the pack describes the block as one side containing smooth fudge, the other flowing sauce, and the centre 'they take turns flowing over crunchy cookie'. Confusing, right? And of course once you've taken the block out of the pack, passed it around and broken up the pieces, it becomes a bit of a lucky dip to find out what the centre of your piece is. But I think that the parts where the pipes intersect with the centre piece is where they join with whatever is in the pipe. So some round pieces are cookie plus fudge, and some are cookie plus sauce. Which of course makes it difficult to review as there's actually four flavours in the block... By the time I realised this little fact I didn't have enough pieces to review, so you'll just have to make up your own minds on the combined pieces.
The milk chocolate outer is quite sweet and milky. It doesn't contain a lot of cocoa or milk solids, at a minimum of 22% and 25% respectively. Vegetable fat is unfortunately the fourth ingredient in the chocolate's list. I can already tell that this is going to be a sugar fest.
The centre pieces hold the cookie centre, and to be honest, aside from the sweetness of the milk chocolate, I didn't get a real taste for the centre. I did discover little chocolate biscuit pieces floating around in there which added a nice texture every now and then.
One of the pipe pieces contains choc fudge. It's a slightly darker colour than the surrounding milk chocolate, and has a rich flavour to it. It's rather sweet and well, fudgey. It's very nice, but too many make my teeth hurt. The final piece is the choc sauce. Similar to the choc sauce in the Kit Kat Chunky 3 bars, the sauce in this Wonka block, by itself, is thin, but a little syrupy and very strong in chocolate flavour. It's a lot like chocolate topping for ice cream. In conjunction with the milk chocolate outer, the piece is very sweet, and sticks to the teeth a little.
I really enjoyed this block, but you will have to be a huge chocolate lover and a sweet tooth to enjoy the variances in texture.
Score: 4.5 out of 5 stars.
