    So awesome to get to taste test this delicious Brookside Chocolate Tablet in Tart cherry crisp with Pomegranate Flavour!
    Smells so amazing!
    Great tasting chocolate with fine pieces of tart cherry and pomegranate fruit hints.
    The dark chocolate is mild tasting and not too bitter. It balances out the flavours of the sweet fruit. The sweet/tartness blend is a happy dance in your mouth!
    My whole family tried this classy chocolate and everyone liked it, even the kids.
    One lovely crafted bar goes a long way. With quality chocolates you don't need much to curb the craving.

    I would definitely buy this bar as a lovely treat and savour it. I was surprised to see that the % of dark chocolate was not labeled.

    Packaging was lovely and not wasteful. The chocolate had beautiful designed scores to break it into different sized squares.

    The quality of this chocolate is high but again I find the flavours to be awkward.

    Fantastic chocolate. This was my second favorite flavour, but definitely my favorite texture. It had the perfect amount of crunchiness and softness. I loved it, will but this one again.

    Out of the three bars I tried this one was by far my favourite! I loved the darker chocolate with the slightly tart cherry, I'll definitely buy this again!

    I received this product, along with 2 other bars, in the review club. I am greatful for having been selected for this! From the start of opening the package, to the taste of the bars, you know you are getting a high quality product! I love the packaging!

    The bar itself offers the ability to snap squares in different sizes. This is a great feature for those who just want a taste, as well as providing a proper serving size for those who need or want to keep track of their intake!

    I like the fact that Brookside has incorporated healthy products into their bars, while still creating great and unique flavours! Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, and dark chocolate has been proven to have many health benefits as well. It makes it easy to enjoy when you can do so without feeling guilty or wondering what negative effects will follow.

    The chocolate is smooth and not bitter as most other chocolates of the same caliber. It didn't melt in my mouth as much as others, certainly not as much as a milk chocolate would, but it wasn't tough or gritty at all. You can actually taste the fruit! The cherries and pomegranate compliment each other well. That being said, this is the one bar that I personally did not enjoy as much as the others. The bitterness of the chocolate, combined with the tartness of the cherries and pomegranate were a bit too much for my palate. I would eat it if a craving hit and it was my only option, but wouldn't go out of my way to purchase this bar.

    I like the other Brookside chocolates that come in bags; they are great for tossing on yogurt, or in a salad for an extra pop. That being said, sometimes you just want a chocolate bar! These fit the bill! Unlike the bags that I could polish off fairly quickly, the bars are consumed much slower, and it allows the person eating to actually savour the flavours!

    One thing that truly impresses me with Brookside is that it is the only dark chocolate my family and I can consume without getting migraines! That alone speaks to the higher quality of product! I am not sure how it is manufactured, processed, or what specific ingredients they use, but it is fantastic to be able to eat something that we all enjoy without such a horrid result!

    Although I will most definitely be purchasing the other two bars again, my only concern with them is their price point. Though I have seen them a few places for about $4, I have also seem them at my usual stores costing as high as $8 per bar! It is definitely worth it for the quality, but at that price for the size of bar you get, it is something that will only be purchased either when on sale or as a treat. I would purchase these over similar bars in their category that share the same price point.

    I highly recommend everyone try them! Initially I wasn't too keen on the sound of the flavours, due to other brands products I've tried that were absolutely disgusting, but was pleasantly surprised for the most part! These are by far one of my top treat foods now! Even if you've had other similar items as I had, it is worth putting the fears aside and trying them! If you are anything like myself or my family (whom I might add ate the better halves of my bars.. Haha!) you will not regret it!!!

    I took longer for me to finish all the bars. However, I must admit that tart cherry crisp with pomegranate took slightly longer then the rest flavours.
    I think the best thing about Brookside in general is the quality of chocolate. Dark Chocolate! This makes a difference since when you are indulging yourself, you still want that great quality. In addition, regular milk chocolate is not as useful, as the dark one. I also enjoyed the texture of the crisps inside the bars, They were small and crunchy, very light.
    The flavour to me was, perhaps, the main reason for becoming the number three in this race. I did not really feel that much of a pomegranate, but the cherry was overwhelming and somewhat already tried. Cherry and chocolate are very common in many brands and are generally a win-win for a company and customers. Still, I wanted to go with something brand-new.
    In terms of gift-giving, I would definitely present such a bar to my loved one or a friends. Itt has great tartness to it and aroma. Quality again is important point. Therefore, Brookside Chocolate Tablet Bar in Tart Cherry Crisp with Pomegranate Flavour is a nice idea to show your appreciation or supplement another item (a tea cup or bottle of wine).

    I find that the texture was crunchy and soft at the same time. The chocolate had a beautiful smooth and gleaming appearance. The taste of the chocolate, even if it is black chocolate, was not very bitter and got married well to tart cherry crisp with pomegrenate flavor. The taste was surprising, very delicious. This tablet allowed me to fill well my taste of chocolate. I liked well this surprising flavor.It was different from chocolates which I usually consume. I adored! It is certain that I will buy again this flavor of chocolate and that I will recommend it to my family and my friends! Enjoy it!

    Least favourite of the two, I found it a bit to tart but over all the chocolate is good.
