Super Value - Chocolate.

Quite coarse ribbons, a little higher with the amount of brown to black, nicely hydrated, with a heavenly aromatic smell.

So, the smoke: not one that's cartelized by vanilla black Cavendish, in a sticky fashion. The Virginia and Burley offer a lot more flavour. The chocolate sits atop of the tobaccos, without 'running the show'; it sweetens and gives the smoke a creaminess. The burn can require a fair amount of work to stabilize; quite a lot of initial lights and tamping. A positive feature of the burn is temperature: cool. It also doesn't bite.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: very nice.

So, Super Value Chocolate? Quite a pleasant smoke, but doesn't deserve more than two stars; from me:

Somewhat recommended.

Not a bad tobacco, nothing to write home about though. Not the best chocolate, I much prefer Chocolate Silk but this is half the price. A bit on the chemically side, would probably be better dried out just a touch. Detected no tongue bite and the tobacco itself is a bit weak. I appreciate the price and like I said, it is not terrible, just not very good.

Well this isn't like firing up a 3 Musketeer's bar, like I was imagining. This has a very mild subtle chocolate flavor to me. Almost like an old OTC cocoa-ey burley honestly, with a good amount of sweetener added to it. Kinda like C.Hall coated with corn syrup. Honestly, I'm a little miffed at this. I was originally scared it'd be too chocolatey and fake tasting. Now I'm like "where's the chocolate?!". Wife is my blind test sniffer (she's NOT blind mind you), and she didn't rave about the note. She thought it was one of my vanilla blends. Now I will admit this is based off of my first 3 bowls of this blend. I will air some out further, and update if anything amazing happens.

Edit: Dried some out for better smoking, and what I can say is it honestly didn't help the flavor. To me what I get is a very light "hot chocolate/cocoa" flavor in the front of my mouth. Like after you swallow a swig of Cocoa and lick you lips. Very mild to unnoticeable. LIke you would have to prove to me this bag said "Chocolate". My wife refuses to believe this is Chocolate, and is probably more pissed than I am about the flavor/odor. I've used this to blend with their S.Value Cherry 50/50 and it was lost in the mix, and actually just flattened out the cherry flavor, adding no dimension. I also used this with Granger, and actually believe it brought that tobacco up a notch. So that may be it's new home. As the description above states: "...natural top note of rich chocolate that is unobtrusive". How you can be "rich" and "unobtrusive" (which sounds a lot like flavorful and unnoticeable) is beyond me, but not to S.Value, 'cause they did just that.

Super Value chocolate- the smell out of the package is rather faint. A whiff of chocolate, a little nuttiness, and a sweetness that comes from the black cav and/or the topping. The taste has the black cav brown sugar notes out in front followed by the nutty, earthy burley, the VA's are more of a support player. The chocolate really does not overpower the tobaccos but runs right along side of them and offers a little bit of creaminess to the smoke. It will not bite; smokes fairly dry for an aro of this type. The finish is on the longer side especially for a mild smoke and is pleasant. The room note is very nice most people enjoyed it others offered no comments. It did take several relights even after drying. A nice blend but when I think of chocolate my comparison standard is SG's Chocolate Flake and this does not come close to that. While SG blends have become harder to find I would still rather wait on it to come in. That said I will not be revisiting but those that enjoy a nice note of chocolate in there aromatics might want to try this one.

I must start out by saying this stuff is very moist. It stuck to my fingers right out of the bag. My fingers were brown after packing the bowl. Even though it was so moist, it lit up okay and stayed lit throughout. Not a bad tasting tobacco to me. Has a nice chocolate flavor and some chunky Black Cavendish mixed in with the Burley. About halfway through the bowl, the chocolate fades a bit and I got the taste of a nice sweet burley. I usually don't smoke aromatics, but this one isn't bad. My wife loves the room note. I keep it around for when I crave something sweet to smoke. I have a cob dedicated to this one. Use caution, it is a major ghoster. Also leaves a sticky, goopy mess at the bottom of the bowl--complete with some wet dottle.

this is a 12oz air sealed bag with a price tag that could be very hard to beat! being sometimes in a place where i compromise quality for quantity, i gave this one a go. the moisture level of the tobacco is acceptable and slow puffing can bring this tobacco to the reef where you can toy around with it. the room note is acceptable but not superb and the chocolate/vanilla taste fade in and out but the tobacco is not dull all the way and it could be enjoyed at occasions. it burns very clean and the strength is not overwhelming. to my experience it could be a flavoring agent to many straight blends. not a bad experience on its own though, but to me it stands just below the smoker pride black cavendish if you tried that one!
