There’s milk chocolate and then there’s carefully crafted, well manicured milk chocolate. You’ve heard about them from me before and for good reason- my little palate sings happiness every time I eat it.
Millcreek Cacao has a new bar!
As we have discussed, Millcreek Cacao is rich in taste, elegantly made and this bar is no exception. As with their dark chocolate types, the bar is made of cacao beans from the Arriba Nacional species found in Ecuador.
Opening the bar reveals the familiar bar shape of Millcreek Cacao. But quickly you notice the rich aroma of chocolate blended with a delightful vanilla. The bar is slightly lighter brown than their other bars, but a perfect smooth shiny texture.
I have to pause here to tell you that breaking open a good piece of chocolate now is almost like Christmas morning. I get so excited because I just love all the different flavors and their variety. But hold back- and don’t rip into it as you might a Christmas present. Take note of the features of the bar that we discuss and your experience will be that much better.
Anyway. Breaking off a corner cuts into the stillness of the air, unlike most othe milk chocolate bars. Place a piece on your tongue, sit back and delight. The texture on the tongue is smooth and full. The taste of vanilla comes to life here in harmony with the chocolate and just a hint of berries. I enjoy a perfectly smooth bar and the Millcreek Cacao milk chocolate bar is just a touch under that. No biggie though because for me, taste definitely comes first.
For all of you out there that are a little timid of dark chocolate, this would be a bar for you. The cacao content is lower, chocolate taste is not comprimised and it is a little bit sweeter than most dark bars.
On a side note- a big congratulations to Dana and Mark of Millcreek Cacao! They have passed the first round in the Grow America Contest!
My husband comes home tonight after being gone for 10 days! I think we are going for Cafe Molise and a bit of chocolate this weekend. What are your chocolate plans?
