Welcome to Day #14 of European Chocolate Vacation Theme Week.
The aroma notes of for this bar included creamy chocolate ice cream, and buttery chocolate cookie (pecan shortbread).
The relatively bold, smooth dark flavor of this bar was blended with a creamy, smooth texture and taste. It was a delicious implementation of a relatively deep, dark chocolate--made without sugar--mellowed by milk that also added enough natural sweetness to be just right. (A judicious touch of vanilla added a little bit of implied baked goods sweetness.)
I would definitely include this bar in a tasting flight (side-by-side chocolate tasting), to introduce people this 70% sugar free dark (with milk) offering with no added sweeteners (artificial or otherwise).
Maker's notes: "...offers an impressive nougat waffle aroma. Intense notes of milk and cream accompanied by a subtle fruitiness..." "...an obvious waffle aroma carried by a mountain of nougat develops after initial notes of lightly salted nuts."
Ingredients: Cocoa mass, dry whole milk, cocoa butter, organic vanilla bean powder.
