Nerd Food: Finn Balor Chocolate Melts In Your Mouth – And Everywhere Else

It should come to no surprise to anyone reading this that I have a huge, mega-crush on WWE Superstar Finn Balor. He's exceptionally talented, humble, and really goddamn easy on the eyes. So while out and about at the mall, I stopped into an FYE, because I was absolutely not looking to buy anything with Balor's face on it. Especially not a damn chocolate bar with his spicy mug smack-dab on the wrapper.

If you're thinking, "Wow, Lauren, you're totally predictable and a terrible liar," you're absolutely correct. I have no self control; life is pain.

I'm actually not a fan of dark chocolate, and the combination isn't my first choice in chocolate mixes. But I guess making it somewhat spicy goes in line with the whole Demon King thing. It's clever, I'll give Astor Chocolate that. Yet I still had reservations. Hopefully this wouldn't let me down.

My issue with a lot of pop culture-type food is that it's almost always pretty mediocre. There's not much to it outside of the slightly varied packaging. M&M's doesn't make special flavors for comic book movies, and that's all right. But there was actual thought behind this flavor pairing, and some of the other available flavor-wrestler pairings are unique as well:

  • "C" Salt Caramel Milk Chocolate for John Cena
  • Fearfully Dark Chocolate for Bray Wyatt
  • Phenomenal Milk Chocolate for AJ Styles
  • Hand Clappin' Pop Rock Chocolate for The New Day
  • The Big Dog's Milk Chocolate for Roman Reigns
  • The Architect's Milk Chocolate for Seth Rollins
  • Apex Predator Milk Chocolate for Randy Orton

For starters, the chocolate is soft. I was expecting hard, clearly mass-produced crap, and that didn't happen. The taste itself is actually really good. The chocolate melts immediately, and it's not an overpowering taste. The chipotle adds a great kick to it at the end (kind of like Balor — he's exceptional at kicking). Granted, it was a little spicy for my tastes, but this wasn't the worst thing I've ever eaten. For $4 I'd probably go back and buy more, since this is absolutely worth the price.

As the packaging says, this is an FYE exclusive. So unless you have an FYE at a mall near you, you may be out of luck. Happy hunting!
