Welcome to Day #2 Chocolate and Dominican Republic Theme Week.
This Cachet 39 percent Milk Organic Chocolate bar was made in Belgium, with fairly traded, organic cocoa beans from the Dominican Republic.
This relatively creamy, organic (or bio) bar was a little more three-dimensional than most milk chocolate bars. Lots of sugar and milk can mute, or even extinguish, cacao flavors.*
It had an interesting aroma and flavor with some depth (faint roasted coffee, milk, earth, tart fruit) not normally found in chocolate bars with less than 40 percent cacao solids.
*Ingredients list for today's bar: (organic) sugar, (organic) cocoa butter, (organic) whole milk powder, (organic) cocoa liquor and natural vanilla flavoring...Today's five-ingredient* bar was 39 percent cacao solids, and 20 percent (minimum) milk solids, meaning a relatively large percent would be sugar.
