It’s a strange thing when you taste milk chocolate that’s not mixed with a million different ingredients and actually has a pretty decent cocoa content. And that’s what I found when I tried this Corazon Del Ecuador Milk Chocolate which is a handmade bar by Duffy from Red Star Chocolate. I’ve tried his 72% dark chocolate bar which also had cocoa from Ecuador so I was very interested to see how this one would fair. Not being the biggest milk chocolate lover I was concerned that it’d be either radically different or too similar to the traditional, mass-produced stuff we see from the big-players.
As with the other version, this bar had a lovely scenic picture of a couple of mountains and a line of clouds, which I just love – it’s great to have a departure from the traditional, bold colours. Also with this bar you have the complete lack of artificial ingredients such as flavourings and colourings – you only have organic sugar, cocoa beans, cocoa butter and milk powder and that simplicity really does shine through when tasting it.
