Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate Truffle Bars Week.

Today's Cinnamon Plant-based oat milk truffle bar was from Lake Champlain Chocolates (Burlington, VT). This plant-based chocolate was made with oat milk and 43% cocoa.

Aroma notes included: chocolate, oats (oat milk, oat straw) and cinnamon.

Texture: the softer, truffle ganache-style filling was surrounded by a firmer chocolate shell. 

Flavor notes included: sweet milk-like chocolate, grain/grass (oat, very faint rice), spices (mostly cinnamon) and very faint vanilla.

This sweet chocolate evoked an image of a childhood breakfast of sweet hot chocolate with sweetened, cinnamon oatmeal. It was a bit too sweet for me, but it might be great for those with a sweet tooth.
