Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Madagascar Theme Week.
Today's 100% Organic Single Origin 60% Melk Madagaskar (Milk Madagascar) bar--made with cacao from Akesson's Bejofo Estate, was handcrafted in Scandinavia by Fjak Sjokolade (Hardangerfjord, Norway).
Aroma notes for this single origin 60% bar included: milk chocolate, fruit (raisin) and very faint vegetable (potato vegetable soup). Like most chocolates, any savory vegetable notes generally "disappear" or recede after a few minutes of opening.
This dark milk chocolate had a uniform, creamy taste and texture, with a slight granular astringency.
Flavor notes included: dark milk chocolate, subtle cream caramel, and lovely fruit (fresh, ripe, sweet, white wine grape; white raisin and very faint sweet tangerine).
Maker's tasting notes: "Round creamy chocolate with hints of citrus and caramel"
Ingredients: Cocoa beans*, cane sugar*, milk powder* and cocoa butter* (*Organic)
Allergen-related information: Contains milk.
