Ghirardelli Caramel Latte Chocolate Bar
The Ghirardelli Caramel Latte chocolate bar is a limited-edition bar in Ghiradelli’s filled chocolate bar line. The bar marries Ghirardelli’s signature high-quality chocolate with a coffee-flavored caramel filling. Having lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for several years myself, I have to admit I am a teensy bit biased in Ghirardelli’s favor. And, as a native Portlander, I am way biased in favor of anything that has to do with coffee… as long as it’s good coffee.

Ghirardelli Caramel Latte Bar
I picked this bar up on a whim, as I don’t usually gravitate toward caramel-filled chocolate. Well, the candy gods must have been smiling on me because this is one delicious candy bar. The packaging is classic Ghirardelli, with an illustration of the caramel-oozing chocolate atop a pile of coffee beans. Pretty standard packaging fare. The packaging color is dull metallic gold, signifying luxury and richness. The chocolate is wrapped in a metallic gold foil wrap, again, traditional and signifying richness.

The chocolate smells sweet with a very subtle caramel note. When you bite into it, the chocolate is smooth, and the caramel is sweet with a butterscotch note, and then a subtle aftertaste of coffee. And then the addiction sets in. This stuff is sooo good! One little square will do you, though (which is probably why Ghirardelli sells little chocolate squares individually packaged). You probably won’t want to eat more than one square in a sitting.

Ghirardelli Caramel Latte Chocolate Bar Inside

The Ghirardelli fan in me was pleased when I ate this and it was the best.thing.ever. The Portland coffee-drinker in me didn’t think the coffee flavor was very pronounced. Of course, if you order a an actual caramel latte at your favorite coffee shop, the coffee flavor hides in all the sweetness and milk, too. I guess that means this candy bar is a lot like its namesake beverage. As a mother of three, I sometimes hide out in the laundry room for a two-minute break and sneak chocolate. We’ll call it Mother’s Little Helper. I will definitely stash a bar of this somewhere so I can eat a square on the sly whenever I need a little pick-me-up.
