After the great success of the Brunost chocolate – made with the typical brown goat’s cheese – Fj maaktk now also makes an extra festive version to which wafers and strawberry chips have been added. The whole thing certainly looks festive and the combination is very tasty with the typical taste of the Brunost. In short: a beautiful bar to celebrate exciting flavors, to toast to these Norwegian chocolate makers who came up with the idea of making chocolate with goat cheese, and of course to simply enjoy it in small pieces.
When we taste the chocolates (and we always do that before we offer them), we put our first experience on the packaging, usually in a few words describing the taste and texture – here we have kept it at a big plus. So approved. Do not expect crunchy pieces of waffle, the structure is somewhat soft, but that is not a problem for us in the whole of this chocolate, we think it is a nice chocolate to taste and we continue to like how the makers get a lot of inspiration for their flavor additions from the area, such as the locally very popular brown goat cheese. As we understand it, you can often find waffles with strawberry & this cheese in eateries. We’ve never been to Norway ourselves so can’t confirm it, but we believe it immediately and it’s a fun fact.
The makers further say about it:
“Caramelized white chocolate with brown cheese topped with Norwegian waffles and strawberry. Waffles are eaten in all Scandinavian countries, but in Norway they have a special place. Waffles are to the Norwegians what croissants are to the French, they are sold in cafes and in every home made. Waffles served with brown cheese and strawberry marmalade are one of the most iconic Norwegian dishes.”
We really like that Fjåk knows how to make both high quality ‘regular’ dark origin chocolates and really exciting chocolates with flavor additives – which are not only extraordinary (if not standard) but also very tasty. The Fjelltur chocolate with orange & almond, the original Brunost and now this version with strawberry & waffles for a festive touch. And then there are the chocolates with smoked sea salt and of course (it is Scandinavia after all) with liquorice/licorice.
