First, the actual product does not look like the one on the packaging, too flat and too big, not one mouth bite size, cannot pop a whole piece into the mouth.

Second, the chocolate coating is not aromatic.

Third, I was expecting the filling to be more liquid with the liquor fragrance, yet it tasted nothing like cherry nor rum.

Lastly, the soft pastry is too much in proportion to the filling.
