This post is not related to sous vide cooking. Nevertheless I wanted to share with you a nice moment I enjoyed testing this strange delicacy.
A friend suggested us to taste the Whif at the end of a meal. I heard, few years ago, about the Whif concept but I didn’t have until now the opportunity to try this product. This is not a new product nevertheless this is still a curiosity that is appealing!
The idea is to inhale through the mouth fine chocolate powder particles (or other flavors) to obtain an intense taste but without the usual texture of chocolate in your mouth. This tidbit is an aerosol (they call it AeroShot) that is supposed to give you the pleasure of chocolate without the calories … on paper you call that an invitation to pure pleasure!
The design of the packaging and the product is attractive. We have tested several flavors, chocolate, chocolate mint and chocolate raspberry. Using the Whif is easy, it can be closed for multiple use.
In conclusion : This is definitely an interesting concept, it will set the mood of your party, but this is underwhelming. None of us has done “Whouaouu!” after testing the Whif. We are probably facing a significant cultural barrier with this product. For me it is impossible to dissociate, in mouth, the taste of chocolate from the texture of the chocolate.
