I'm a huge fan of Vosges. In fact, my all time favorite chocolate bar -- the Barcelona Bar is made by them. So when I heard that they were coming out with panned chocolates -- including Barcelona Almonds -- as well as a new line of organic bars, I was eager to try them to say the least. Well, they arrived in the mail this week and I'm going on a chocolate binge.
I resisted the urge to start with the Barcelona Almonds and instead opted for the simplest item in the lot -- a milk chocolate bar. The Vosges Organic Dominica Lait bar is made with Grand Cru beans, both Criollo and Trinitario. This is the good stuff.
Upon opening the package the smell is strong and intoxicating -- a bit earthy, maybe even slightly smokey. Upon putting the first piece on the tongue, it melts quickly into a lush creaminess -- ultra smooth with a silky mouthfeel. A bit sweet, almost like caramel with a touch of saltiness and a hint of smoke. It is absolutely lovely.
Wow! If I don't stop myself I might devour this entire bar in one sitting -- it's that good. I can't wait to try the next bar!
