Mast Brothers - Never Again
It is not often that I write a disgruntled post about food, but here is one for you. I am not the type to complain about the price of a meal or anything food related when I feel I have obtained that value for the quality of the product and taste of it. I must say that my experience with Mast Brothers chocolate has been a great disappointment. I had been looking forward to trying one of their chocolate creations for so long because everywhere I looked people were touting their chocolate as something like the next coming of Christ. I guess it just goes to show that sometimes all the great reviews can only amount to a great pile of disappointment when the product just does not live up to the hype. The bar my husband and I tried was the one mixed with Sumptown Coffee (which both my husband and I love), so we thought it was a win win. Oh boy were we wrong. The chocolate was more a waxy, bitter mess than anything resembling chocolate. The picture above shows the chocolate bar and what was actually consumed before we dumped it into the trash. I have to say that paying $9 dollars per bar would have been a bit excessive, but at least acceptable if the product had been good in any way. At this point I feel absolutely ripped off and saddened by the fact that I had such high hopes for these chocolatiers and feel bad that I have to write what I am writing today. Sorry Mast Brothers.
