Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Oats Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Finland Theme Week.
Today's ChocOat Plain Original Oat Milk Milk Chocolate bar was manufactured by Helsinki Heaven OY (Helsinki, Finland).
This single serving oat milk in this bar will offer a nice alternative to those who are vegan or who may want to avoid dairy products. It had a smooth, even chocolate taste and uniform texture and was not too sweet (thank you!).
The chocolate had a roasted (almost burnt) aroma, and a slightly waxier melt than a dark milk chocolate made with dairy might have. It was also eaten on a cold, winter morning, which can create a shift in perceived texture and mouthfeel with many chocolate bars. (Slowly bringing bars closer to room temperature (e.g. from 50 or 60 degrees F. to 68 or 70 degrees F.) before tasting generally softens the chocolate a bit and leads to more accessible aroma and flavors as well.)
