The description on the box reads, " a crisp buttery cocoa crust filled with creamy almond butter and chocolate ganache." One tarte (serving size says 4) costs $5.99.

A mom's (my) take: Rich. This is definitely rich. I'm not mad at this tarte; I just don't love it. There's a taste here that I just can't put my finger on that I didn't enjoy...almost a burnt flavor? I eat a LOT of almond butter...often with a few Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips, and I prefer that combo to this tarte. Maybe my palate is so used to the particular almond butter and chocolate that I usually eat that anything else tastes wrong.
Overall rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: This was excellent! The base isn't too mushy, nor is it too difficult to eat or cut. For my personal taste, it was a bit too creamy (but that's just my opinion). The almond butter layer in the middle was great, and reminded me more of caramel than anything else. Finally, the crust was unlike anything I've ever tasted: it held together perfectly, but yielded readily to the fork... I don't know what to say! It was a new experience in the world of tartes and pies.
Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

  2. I tend to eat frozen foods pretty cold, even partly frozen, and I did like this a lot the first time - nice almond/chocolate combo. But I just came home from the store and didn't put food away right away, and this had a chance to soften...and I'm an even bigger fan now!
    Kudos to "Jack" pointing out the different layers. I'll have to count them> :)
