Join us this Saturday for a fun tasting day featuring our current favourite Dark Milk Chocolate bars!
For those of you who are wondering, modern milk chocolate is not kid's stuff: it is just the same single origin dark bars we sell with a bit of powdered milk added. Creamy, lush, decadent and full of the pure taste of real chocolate. Expect to see between 40% and 65% cocoa mass and very little in the way of added flavour.
