Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Iceland Theme Week.
This morning's Milk Chocolate Praline with Caramel and Sea Salt confections were from Noi Sirius (Reykjavik, Iceland). The box of 5 pieces came neatly packaged, and with a cover photo of two Arctic foxes.
(See next post for chocolate ice cream desserts enjoyed later this same day (in the evening) in Reykjavik.)
Each of these oval-shaped confections was topped with a tiny raised image--in the shape of the county of Iceland.
Aroma notes included: sweet milk chocolate and caramel.
The texture: soft, flowing (liquid), light golden caramel encased by a layer of smooth milk chocolate.
Flavor notes included: balanced confectionery levels of sweet milk chocolate, caramel, and faint salt.

Cocoa dry solids min. of 37%), caramel filling (33%) (sugar, glucose syrup, water, vegetable oil (palm kernel), whole milk powder, molasses, table salt, flavours, invertase, emulsifiers (soya lecithin), acid regulator (E501), acid (E296)).
