Welcome to the first day of Chocolate and Honey Theme Week.
Sometimes people think that eating a new chocolate every day must be like dwelling in the land of milk and honey. More accurately, it involves visits the land of milk chocolate and honey.
Today's Milk Chocolate Honey Almond Chocolates from Baru (Belgium) were molded into small (individually-wrapped) hippo shapes. Cute!
The 33% milk chocolate hippos had a sweet milk chocolate aroma and flavor with a creamy melt.
The almonds were difficult to detect in the honey nougat flavored milk chocolate. A bit of nice honey flavor surfaced in the finish.
*Note to those watching their allergens: While there was no specific wheat ingredients called out, this chocolate contained glucose, a sweetener that can contain/be made from wheat. And the label carried a "may contain traces of wheat/gluten" type advisory.
