The bar had a weight of 300g. I don’t know if there are smaller bars.

The big chocolate bar of Karaliskas has a strong and hard character. I needed some strength to break the bar in two pieces.

The chocolate reminded me on Austrian cooking chocolate. It was such a full taste of bitter chocolate. I would say the chocolate is not so bad, but I would not rate it as one of my top chocolates.
Karaliskas Chocolate is a bit over the average.

The first taste is cheap and sweet. At the beginning not too bad. Chapped and dry if you take a bite. At the end you get an ugly, unattractive, and not very tasteful “chocolate” mass in your mouth. The same like with the Elfas Chocolate, but this time the taste is not that bad that you want to spit it out. But enjoyable? No way!

I would say the Milk Chocolate of Vilniaus Pergale is a cheap candy product and not recommendable. I won’t eat this chocolate again. It’s better to eat an apple. Better taste and more healthy.

Elfas Chocolate

chocolateCongratulations! This is for sure the worst chocolate in my whole life.

I already had a bad feeling when I saw the childish motive on the wrapping. A smiling dwarf in ridiculous clothes. What to expect from a product with such a dubious wrapping?

But finally I gave it a try and opened the chocolate. The experience was horrible. Elfas Chocolate is a soft mass which only looks like chocolate. If you expect a chocolate taste you will be disappointed. The sad result about this chocolate test was that I had to run out of the house, and spit out the “Elfas mass” into the garden.

Elfas Chocolate is a horrible product. I still feel sick of tasting that product, and this makes me quite upset.

princas sokoladas chocolate schokoladePrincas Sokoladas Chocolate “Pieninis Sokoladas Su Grietineles Skonio Jdaru” is a chocolate bar, manufactured in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas by AB Kraft Foods Lietuva.

The first impression of the chocolate: very sweet.

After you suck the chocolate for one or two minutes, you are going to explore the precious filling of Princas. The filling consits of creamy caramel. The taste of the caramel is not too strong. Just a gentle caramel flavour, and very creamy.

My opinion: a very good chocolate. The wrapping looks not too tempting, so I hestitated to take this chocolate product. But now I must say, it was not a mistake to take and try Princas chocolate. But if you are a fan of dark bitter chocolates: take your hands away!

If you take a bite of the chocolate you hear a loud “crack”. This is another interesting thing about Karuna. You could eat one bar of Karuna in several minutes.

I had the pleasure to taste the Sostines Chocolate “Grietininis”. Grietininis is the Lithuanian expression for “cream”. The taste of the chocolate confirms the good reputation of the manufacturer. My first piece melts very pleasant on my tongue. The taste is not bitter, but not too sweet either. The content of cacao amounts 33 percent. The chocolate is a good enjoyment if you like it sweet. For bitter chocolate lovers Sostines might be a tad too sweet.
