Bar: Milk of Nicaragua 50%
Maker: OmNom Chocolate (Reykjavik, Iceland)
Price: $8/60g (Cacao Review online shop)
Munch Factor: 8/10
Ingredients: Organic Cocoa Beans, Raw Cane Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Icelandic Milk Powder, and Sunflower Lecithin (E322).
Appearance: parrots eye you from both sides of the bar while a wolf watches in the middle. A moderately light brown rectangle emblazoned with the same wolf waits inside. The packaging is beautiful, as always.
Aroma: sweet, salty caramel with fatty undertones.
Melt & Snap: okay melt & strong snap.
Flavor: sweet, fatty like melted butter, and then a cooked caramel with fine-grained melt. The finish is long, and that’s where the cocoa flavor finally came in; it reminds me of sour milk if you let it sit for too long.
Complaints & Complements: this is much sweeter and lighter than I expected a 50% milk to be, with a pretty hard melt. It seems like he must use a lot of cocoa butter. Good, but very monotonal.
Context: sitting in my apartment in Korea before dinner.
