Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Golden Sugars Theme Week.
Today's Bee Happy 34% Milk Chocolate with Honeycomb and Crunchy Caramel (bar) was from Gnaw Handcrafted Chocolate (Norwich, U.K.).
Aroma notes for this bar included: sweet milk chocolate (chocolate candy bar), caramel and faint nuts (faint peanut caramel, very faint toffee almond nougat). Note: there were no peanuts or nut ingredients in this bar.
The texture was a blend of smooth, sweet milk chocolate and softly crunchy caramel (honeycomb toffee) bits and sweet caramelized sugars.
This 34% cacao (candy bar sweet) milk chocolate had prominent caramelized sugar flavors, consistent with the aroma notes mentioned above, including sweet milk chocolate, crunchy and smooth caramel and toffee bit(s) flavor; very faint/implied hints of honey-ed nuts; and very faint sweetened breakfast cereal. (Again there were no nut ingredients listed.)
Ingredients: Sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, cocoa liquor, honeycomb (sugar, glucose syrup, baking soda, rice flour), caramel pieces (glucose syrup, sugar, sweetened condensed milk (milk, sugar), salted butter (milk, water, salt), soy lecithin, natural vanilla flavoring.
Allergen-related information: Contains dairy/milk (milk powder, butter). (No other printed information found on label.)
