Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Tanzania Theme Week.
Today's Dark Milk of Tanzania 65% (bar) was from OmNom Chocolate (Reykjavik, Iceland).
The cacao used to make this chocolate bar was grown in Tanzania in Africa. And Icelandic milk (powder) contributed to the aroma, texture and flavor of this 65% dark milk chocolate bar.
The aroma had cream, ripe fruit and chocolate caramel notes.
The melt and texture were smooth and substantial; there was a very slight fruit astringency toward the finish.
The fruit flavor notes (red apple, ripe red berry, ripe stone fruit, faint apricot-peach jam) were very pleasant. The chocolate also had balanced chocolate caramel taste, and a faint, fleeting earth note that was politely muzzled by milk and sugar.
Ingredients: Organic cocoa beans from Tanzania; organic cane sugar; cocoa butter; Icelandic milk powder; sunflower lecithin (E322).
OmNom Chocolate tasting notes for this bar read as follows: "fudgey, brownie, pear"
