Another offering from Tesco’s pet Swiss chocolatier, and this time it’s a milk chocolate.
This one is made using Ghanaian Forastero Beans, and they give it a full-bodied, very smooth cocoa flavour. The bitterness level of the beans is relatively low, so they’re much more soothing and gentle on the palate and consequently what you get here is a lovely mouthfeel from the high cocoa content, a sumptuous creaminess, and a lovely smooth finish.
This really is what milk chocolate should ALL be like.
As a long time convert to the Dark Side, I do tend to find most milk chocolate can be disappointing in it’s lack of complexity, but I’m delighted to report that Cocopia have come up with a blend which offers all the flavour you could hope for.
This is the sort of chocolate you’d buy as a treat for the kids and end up making regular trips to Tesco to buy for yourself – it’s THAT delicious. If only all UK manufacturers could offer this quality in their milk chocs, I’d be eating a lot more of the stuff.
For the price (£1.50) I’d have to say that it’s well worth the money. UK readers should make sure they check this one out as soon as they can. Highly recommended.
