A milk chocolate, but then completely different, namely completely sugar free, only with cocoa and milk. Anyhow an intriguing and in our opinion quite unique chocolate.
Where milk chocolate generally has a fairly low cocoa percentage (often around 40%, or less), this chocolate has 70% cocoa. In addition, milk chocolate normally contains a lot of sugar. This bar does not. Besides cocoa there is only milk in it, and a little bit of vanilla and salt. Completely sugar-free.
Furthermore Zotter says about:
“An exciting story! A chocolate that dares to not be sweet.” He comes very close to the very first chocolates as also the Maya and the Aztecs do not sweeten their chocolate.
A pure cocoa taste. With 70% cocoa, this milk chocolate is in the same group as the high dark chocolate and is completely free of sugar additives. A lot of cocoa, a lot of milk from the mountain farms from Tyrol and no sugar except the lactose that naturally occurs in the milk. Very fine cocoa butter and real vanilla melt over your tongue. ”
Cocoa mass, full of milk powder, cocoa butter, vanilla, salt. 70% cocoa. Organic and fair trade.
Allergy note: may contain traces of all types of nuts, peanuts, sesame and soy.
Zotter, or as they are called in the whole ‘Zotter Schokoladen Manufaktur’ is a company led by Josef Zotter that has made bean to bar chocolates in Austria since 1999.
They gained familiarity with their filled chocolate with very diverse and unique fillings. Since 2007 they make their own ‘bean to bar’ chocolates. With this, Zotter now also makes a whole series of ‘Labooko’ chocolates, single-origin chocolate bars in pure, milk and white.
