Bar: Madagascar Milk 50%
Maker: Chocolate Tree (Edinburgh, Scotland)
Price: $7/80g (Direct From Maker)
Overall Rating: 6.5/10
Munch Factor: 7/10
Ingredients: Organic Cacao Beans, Organic Milk Powder, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter.
Appearance: a beautiful flower and leaf-emblazoned mold with different heights on each square, though I have seen this mold eslsewhere; color is a very light brown.
Aroma: very earthy and sweet, with a hint of pineapple.
Melt & Snap: beautiful melt & good snap.
Flavor: melting immediately starts with a sweet, slightly fruity & creamy taste that carries through to the end; the finish is short and sweet and surprisingly lacking in fruit.
Complaints & Complements: Chocolate Tree bars actually come with two individually-packaged bars in each box, so it’s double the pleasure to open each package. This particular bar is good, but not one of my favorites. It’s just not as complex as I found their 60% Peru to be.
Context: sitting in my office after lunch, just lesson-planning and listening to music.
