Today was Day #2 of Milk Chocolate Theme Week.
I started eating a different chocolate each day, almost six years ago. This year, it seemed easier to find quality milk chocolate bars (that were available in the U.S.) than when I started -- a sign that the market has continued to grow and evolve.
Today's NewTree Belgian Milk Chocolate bar was made from 50% milk chocolate sourced from the Dominican Republic and Peru. This bar, and most of their other bars, were made in Belgium; however, NewTree nevertheless has a strong presence in the U.S. -- with a new store that recently opened in San Francisco, where this bar was obtained.
This milk bar was quite smooth; however, it took a bit longer to melt in my mouth than I expected.
