Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Botanicals Theme Week.
Flowers are botanicals. One can argue cacao and many chocolates are botanicals.
Today's "Flower Power Mi-Xing bar created by Zotter (Austria). It was a generously-sized, flower-shaped milk chocolate bar adorned with embedded flower and fruit flourishes.
Aroma notes for this pretty bar included different gradations of chocolate (milk, white) as well as flower and fruit notes.
The bar was relatively thick, with a creamy mouthfeel and texture.
This bar contained different levels of milk chocolate (40% and 50%), some decorative swirls of white chocolate, and what looked like candied flavor bits.
Delicate clusters of dried cornflowers (petals) added blue violet color. And tiny "crunchy fruit" and caramel baubles (candy) were imbued with 1.) bright sparkles of tart-sweet passion fruit and 2.) caramel-flavored candy-coated cacao nibs, respectively--creating a nice flavor "reveal" when bitten into, and some welcome flavor complexity.
