has anyone tried this yet? I am assuming this is a new one . . . I have this in my possession (sort of, it is at home and I am currently at work), but have yet to try it because I have been busy eating Pralus (which I don’t know much about either, and have not seen many people speak of).

Anyone in here have anything to say about Pralus? I am curious as to whether or not anyone considers it to be good . . . I have enjoyed it thus far, but am still quite a novice in discerning the finer nuances of chocolate.

Maralumi is quite a good bar; very citrusy with banana and fresh tobacco leaf in the beginning. I also detected honey and traces of nutmeg too. It has quite a sweet feel to it, actually.

Pralus is good but roasted quite long, and as a result, seems to convey a darker tone. Here’s a link in this very forum that discusses Pralus quite a bit:

Hey thanks for the help, I gave the search a once-over, but for some reason didn’t try too hard. Lazy me!

Me too. Re-evaluate your search functions, as you may have accidentally narrowed them down too much. Also, check your spelling too.

Ahh . . . my problem was I had the name maralumi in quotes, “maralumi” and that constrained it to just that one post. I am used to Google, which ignores the quotes as far as it looking for such being a character to look for. Don’t know if that makes sense, but anyway, thanks for the help!
