Nestle Savoy Fruit and Nuts

Occasionally, I get to sample some Venezuelan made chocolate bars, mostly when the company I work for receives a visit from a worker from our Venezuelan plant. The big maker of chocolate in Venezuela is Nestlé Savoy, a subsidiary of Nestle. They make chocolate bars that are geared to the South American market, some similar to those found in North America, some not. The ingredient listing of this Special Edition chocolate bar is unusual, for its fruits portion, it is sugar, milk solids, cocoa butter, toasted almonds, raisins, candied (or sugared) orange pieces (the unusual ingredient, one, that it is in the bar, and two, that it is the fruit rather than the peel, at least for North Americans), cocoa liquor, lecithin and vanillin.

I would say that, I don't like, and have never liked, candied fruit, save for ginger, so I did not enjoy this bar (and it even made me a little queasy), but my beautiful Thai Bride enjoyed it.

My friend devoured this bar very quickly, I managed to save only this part of the wrapper. This Special Edition chocolate bar contains almonds.
