Welcome to Day #6 of Milk Chocolate Theme Week.
IKEA offers a variety of household and food items with Swedish names.
Today's Choklad Ljus ("light chocolate") or Milk Chocolate bar was a generously sized, sweet milk chocolate bar made with UTZ Certified cocoa.* There was no cacao % information on the wrapper, but an IKEA webpage listed this bar as containing 30% cacao.
For the price this was certainly a good value and the bar, although quite sweet, tasted better than most bars containing less than 35% cacao.
*UTZ certified cacao helps "ensure sustainable farming standards and good conditions for workers." Consumers could/can trace the origin of the cacao used by going to a website, www.utzcertified.org/IKEA, to receive origin information. The source for this bar was listed as the Cote d'Ivoire or Ivory Coast, in western Africa.
