One Million Dollars - Milk Chocolate Bar - Landmark Confections

In my quest to review all candy, inexpensive and expensive, tasty and not so tasty, I go to the very ends of the earth to find candy and spare no expense....even one million dollars. Okay, that's not true, but I did find this interesting looking bar at the Dollar Tree and I figured I'd try it out for $1.

The ingredient list looks pretty good, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Milk, Chocolate Liquor, Soy Lecithin (an Emulsifier), Vanilla. It is a simple list and everything you need to make a solid chocolate bar like this one. The maker is Landmark Confections which I cannot find any information about, except that they are linked to Greenbrier International which is The Dollar Tree. I liked the name, "One Million Dollars" it makes this seem like a rich kind of candy, I guess, and rich is a good thing when it comes to chocolate. They make it clear that this is a U.S. made product with giant U.S.A. flag on the back of the wrapper.

I dug through the entire pile but could not find a bar that wasn't broken into pieces. That is typical of something you'd find at the Dollar store. This bar is a single piece of milk chocolate with no scoring to break it into sections. However, since it was already broken into sections, I guess nice snap lines are not needed. This bar did have a nice snap to it and the chocolate had a decent taste. It had a distinct cocoa powder taste that didn't "WOW" me at all. It tasted exactly like Ovaltine or hot chocolate but in bar form. It is a good sized bar at 2 oz and it is a nice thickness too.

We did not hate this chocolate but we didn't love it either. It did leave us asking "Why would you purchase this again?". There are so many GREAT chocolate bars out there for a bit more than this $1 bar, so I'd prefer to purchase those. However, I do like to try everything at least once. Turns out the "Million Dollar" name is just a gimmick, I think it would be more appropriate to call it the 39 cents bar, because at that price, I wold purchase it again.

I have had an allergic reaction to your chocolate. Is there a different ingredient in this from other dark chocolate. I received a fine dark chocolate bar and only had a little piece of the candy bar a couple seperate occasions. Please let me know if there is something different in manufacturing? Please email me at jhart@harnett.k12.nc.us thanks!

I just bought a Landmark Confections chocolate at the Dollar Tree. This one came in a shiny green wrapper and just said "Dark Chocolate with Mint" (Smooth & Creamy Cool Mint Center). For $1, I thought it was amazing. I thought it had a perfect balance of chocolate and mint. This one was cut into sections. Re-order #101077. USB: 39277-01077. If you find it, give it a try. I definitely thought it was worth the dollar! :)
