Dick Taylor 58% Milk Madagascar Chocolate Bar Review

When I heard Dick Taylor was making a milk chocolate bar I couldn’t wait to try it and it doesn’t disappoint! Often Madagascar’s fruit notes can get a bit lost in milk chocolate bars, but not in this one!  Dick Taylor manages to capture so many scents and tastes in this bar using Madagascar cacao with milk from Humboldt Creamery.

Dormouse Chocolates 55% Columbia Arauca Milk Chocolate Bar Review

Dormouse chocolates is a bean to bar chocolate maker located in Manchester in the U.K.  I recently ordered this bar from their online store.  It’s listed as made from a mix of criollo, and trinitario beans, batch 076, and with a conch time of 48 hours.  (The higher the quality the beans, the less conching time is needed, and it let’s the real flavors shine through too).
