Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate Truffle Bars Week.

Today's Sea Salt Caramel Plant-Based Truffle Bars were from Lake Champlain Chocolates (Burlington, VT). 

The chocolate in these truffle bars was made with oat milk and 43% cocoa.

Aroma notes included: butterscotch, very faint grains (oat, rice), chocolate, and light salt caramel.

Texture: A soft, caramel center was surrounded by sweet, "milk"(-like) chocolate.

Flavor notes included: sweet "milk" chocolate, and sweet, relatively light butterscotch and caramel flavored filling. This 43% cocoa bar was relatively sweet. (Sometimes sea salt can help balance out sugar. The sea salt in this Sea Salt Caramel bar was very faint.) 

Those looking for non-dairy, vegan and/or gluten-free (sweeter) chocolates will appreciate this bar--and the other flavors in this relatively new line of 43% cocoa oat milk bars (made with gluten-free oat powder)--from Lake Champlain Chocolates. The company is also committed to not using palm oil or other fillers in their alternative-milk chocolates. 

Ingredients: "Chocolate (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Dried Gluten-Free Oat Powder, Chocolate Liquor, Dried Rice Powder, Sunflower Lecithin, and Vanilla Extract), *Coconut Cream (*Coconut and Water), *Rice Syrup, *Sugar, Sea Salt, and *Natural Flavor." (* = Organic)

Allergen-related information: Contains Tree Nuts (Coconut). May Contain Traces of Milk, Other Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Soybean, and Wheat.
