It was sliced into samples for inclusion into our samplers, leaving still plenty of full sized bars for those who know the scent and love it. It was quite a surprise to find the smoothness of the interior compared to what it looks like with a knife slicing it as opposed to the wire cutter. Additionally, there’s also a pinkish rim around the entire outside surface, which signals to me that oxidation took place. The interior was a smooth, soothing creamy-ivory yellow shade. Only time will tell if it will oxidize to the peachy-pink shade of the exterior. Still not that bad after all. There are are pockets as was expected, though not as bad as one might’ve thought. And another nice surprise was the tiny flecks of the pear from the pureed pear in the bar. If it goes peachy-pink, I’m not sure how well those tiny flecks will show up. I don’t see many on the surface. but all in all, it wasn’t such a terrible bar after all! It’s sensational to smell to be sure, though! Mouthwatering!
