Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate, Almonds and Hazelnuts Theme Week.
Today's 34% cacao milk chocolate bar, designed by a French chef (Chef Yves Thuries)* and made with Ecuadorian cacao, was sweet enough to be a confection on a dessert tray.
In fact, the bar's clever packaging contained 12 separate compartment spaces, each filled with a separate milk chocolate rectangular segment, or bite. Each bite was an attractive tiny bar that could be lifted out and eaten (or displayed neatly on a plate if desired).
Each bite was garnished with nuts (almonds, hazelnuts and pistachios) and pastel-colored fruit gems (raspberries, blueberries, oranges). The end result was a mix of nut, fruit and almost floral flavors. A most pleasant and high-class chocolate candy.
*This bar was a Product of France, and was distributed by SALPA Inc. (Greenwich, CT).
