Luigia Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts

This very large round dark chocolate "bar" comes from Italy, opening the box reveals a solid chocolate "pie" in an aluminum pie tin. This is on the low end of the dark chocolate scale, you can tell from the ingredient listing, sugar is first, followed by cocoa paste, cocoa butter, hazelnuts, soy lecithin (as an emulsifier) and vanilla. The chocolate tastes pretty good, and the packaging is interesting, but I didn't like that the hazelnuts seem to be just added after the fact, not incorporated, at least more, into the bar; they fall out when you break the bar. But that's just a small quibble. I doubt that I would buy this bar again.
