Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week. 

Today's LOVO Almond Milk Chocolate (bar) was manufactured in Switzerland for Radically Good Food Co. (Toronto, ON, Canada).

Very faint aroma notes for this 100% plant-based bar included: sweet dark chocolate, malt and nuts. 

Texture: thick, creamy melt (soft, almost sticky caramel); and creamy, uniform texture.

Flavor notes included: very sweet, creamy, somewhat diluted chocolate (hot cocoa with an alternative milk, very faint almond milk); and very faint (barely detectable) warm spice (gingerbread) in the long, sweet finish. At the very end, I tasted a very tiny, fleeting hint of almond (milk); but otherwise it was difficult to detect any almond or nut-milk flavor.

This was a smooth, creamy, dairy-free (plant-based) chocolate confection made with just five ingredients. It was a bit too sweet for me (sugar was the number one ingredient); but this bar will appeal to those with a sweet tooth, and milk chocolate fans who wish to avoid dairy (milk, cream).

Ingredients: Sugar, cocoa mass*, cocoa butter*, organic almonds, sunflower lecithin, organic vanilla extract. (*Rainforest Alliance Certified. "Find out more at")

Allergen-related information: Contains Almonds. Produced on equipment that also processes products containing milk, coconut, hazelnuts and peanuts.
