Welcome to Day #1 of International Chocolate and Nuts Theme Week. 

Today's Blejski Otok Milk Chocolate with Tarragon and Walnuts (bar) from Slovenia was manufactured by Cokoladni Atelje Dobnik (Gruze, Slovenija). 

Aroma notes for this small bar included: milk chocolate, savory caramel, butter cream, savory-sweet herb, nuts, and very faint, mellow wood.

Flavor notes included: sweet milk chocolate, herb (tarragon), faint vanilla caramel and finely ground walnut bits. These different elements were well balanced and created interesting and complementary flavor complexity. 

This milk chocolate was a bit too sweet for me, but otherwise it was quite enjoyable. And it was great to try a chocolate from Slovenia. Many thanks again to my traveling friend, Toni, who brought this back during her recent travels there.

Ingredients: Milk chocolate (sugar 45.5%, cocoa mass 26%, milk powder 21.5%, emulsifier (soy lecithin), natural vanilla aroma), walnuts, tarragon.

Allergen-related information: (Contains milk/lactose, nuts (walnut), and soy.)
