Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together

Which is of course the slogan of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (I have a soft spot for them as we rarely got candy when I was growing up, but from time to time my father would splurge and get those as those were his favorite. The only other candy I remember having regularly when I was a kid was Three Musketeers as my grandmother had those- and every time I taste them, I remember the old person's smell of her house).

In my travels, I came across the following-

and of course had to buy it, as what else do you do when you see something like Tabasco Chocolate?

Now I happen to like tabasco somewhat. I happen to like chocolate (though am not a fan of dark chocolate).

However...when you mix the two together...sadly it isn't some amazing mixture but rather something worse than the sum of its parts.

Save yourself the money- heck, make it at home if you absolutely have to taste it (Tabasco Dark Chocolate has two ingredients- Tabasco and dark chocolate- so you may be able to figure out the recipe). But I won't be buying it again.
