Chocolate and Love seemed like a company striving in ethics, could their chocolate live up to their high moral?
The milk chocolate was of 55% cocoa. I loved the packaging design and, even more so, seeing cocoa mass enlisted before cocoa butter. The aroma was lovely: creamy, butter, fragrant vanilla, butterscotch, chocolate and a little fruity
The taste, though disrupted by the cacao nibs, mirrored the aroma. The nibs had their expectant blunt, bitter taste, but in particular they tasted chemically and likened to a mix of cereal grain, almond and distilled alcohol all whilst remaining mildly sour. I enjoy cacao nibs by themselves, but I'm yet to taste a nib-studded-chocolate that actually benefits from the nibs
Especially because of its acidic undertones, I know I'd have enjoyed this rich dark milk chocolate alone. The texture was beautifully smooth, the milkfat and cocoa butter did wonders for the tongue, and when chewing it felt like a truffle. The nibs added a crunch which made them even more disruptive. This chocolate isn't quite milk chocolate as we know it, considering it does not state its milk %, but I liked it. It had a strong cocoa body and finish and it wasn't too sweet
