White chocolate is milk chocolate without cacao solids -and usually without character. To offer you an exceptionally delicious white chocolate, this bar focuses on pure essentials: butter of a delicate Trinitario cacao from the Yuna River Valley (Dominican Republic), and milk from a Swiss alp. With no vanilla and lecithin added, a surprisingly pure chocolate moment is revealed.
New efforts by the chocolate industry are aimed at giving cacao beans the cachet of wine grapes.
