RATING: 7.9 OUT OF 10.

Ah, chocolate. Just the sound of the word will melt anyone's taste buds. Chocolate is mostly used as a guilty pleasure, but some experts say that dark chocolate could be good for you because of it's antioxidants. Chocolate can also be used as an aphrodisiac and, of course, as a source of caffeine. A 1.45 ounce Hershey's Special Dark bar has 18 milligrams of caffeine. A Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar has about 9 milligrams and a Hershey's Chocolate Kiss has just 1 milligram. Considering Coca-Cola has 34 milligrams of caffeine, it's hard to see why some people think chocolate has a lot of caffeine. Of course, there are some chocolates that want to up the pace a little bit. Enter Rocket Chocolate. Each small piece has 42 milligrams of caffeine. Pop two and you'll be getting more caffeine than a Red Bull. They come in many different flavors and I will review as many as I can. First up is orange blast. The packaging is typical child-fun chocolate. The wrapper is orange and sports a smiling rocket blasting off into space, or something. The chocolate is solid, um, chocolate. Meaning, it has no filling. I usually don't enjoy milk chocolate but this was delicious. I may not have been able to detect an orange flavor but the chocolate was silky smooth. I'm a huge dark chocolate fan but I think there's some room left over for this milk chocolate masterpiece. As mentioned earlier, each piece has 42 milligrams of good ol' caffeine. No taurine, no b vitamins, no guarana, no anything. Just straight up caffeine. And being a junkie I had two which gave me 84 milligrams of caffeine and a pretty decent boost. It's similar to what you would find in one of the big boys (i.e. Red Bull). It's hard to say how long it lasted but I'll put it around 3 hours, give or take. Overall, Rocket Chocolate is a pretty well-developed product. For a milk chocolate the taste is delicious, the caffeine content is pretty nice and the kick is about average. 7.9 out of 10.
