The Taste: A friend recently gave me a box of Dean & Deluca chocolates and one of them happened to be a pumpkin chocolate.
The Test Verdict: 6 for flavor and texture. With the first bite, I thought this was going to be a generic chocolate that was pumpkin only in name and color. But the cream-filled center really surprised me with its balanced sweet flavor and smoothness. It didn't have the artificial, sugaryness that so many bad chocolates have. But overall it lost points because it lacked the depth of a good dark chocolate. When I bit into it, the top (which, though colorful, had little taste) popped off, in a funny way, resembling a carved pumpkin.
