Wait a moment!!! You know that feeling when the perfect chocolate treat just speaks to you?
Well, Gaston Dark Milk Caramelized Peanuts just spoke to me about the difficulty of making decisions in your life when faced with what you see as the real uncertainty about your health. It unleashes your true greedy soul with its chocolatey-peanut-granola-chewy bite packed with yummy-choco-nutty taste on a creamy milk background. Finding something that brings you joy is really hard to find so... letting go of it is even harder. But the bar is gone and there is nothing I can do about it.
I often taste more than one bar in one session for fun and experience chocolate through creativity (pairing inclusions), inquiry, and exploration. It`s not often I get this sort of preference between one bar and another. But here I am. What can I say? I love granola and Gaston just made my day. Absolutely my favorite sample!
Dark Milk 56% Caramelized Peanuts
Ingredients: cocoa beans, cocoa butter, sugar, milk powder, peanuts
GC says: this dark-milk 56% is a subtle blend of cacao and creaminess. Inclusion of caramelized peanuts will touch the child in you, straight from the candy shop. A sweet tooth favorite. And I could not agree more!
I always remain consistent with the goal of creating a reliable post/review that is worthy of your time. After my lightning strike, let me say a few words about the Caramelized Nagae Nuts & Sea Salt dark.
Caramelized Nangae Nuts & Sea Salt 70% Dark
Ingredients: cocoa beans, cocoa butter, sugar, Nangae nuts, sea salt.
Academy of Chocolate Bronze winner 2017
Our 70% meets crunchy caramelized Nangae nuts and a spark of sea salt. Roasting the Nangae lifts the flavor of this locally grown nut which we dip into the caramel and freeze to get breakable blocks for addition into our 70% Dark. Sea salt crystals pop in your mouth and add a nice sparkling finish to this intense chocolate and nut alliance.
Warm and creamy mouth feel. The attack of the mouthfeel is soft and caramel-like but this is immediately balanced by flavors of apricots and the special Vanuatu Almond inclusion. In the finish, it reveals some bitterness but I did not detect relevant salty/savory notes on the palate.
Thank you so much to all the Gaston Chocolat family for sharing with me your reality and hopes, and the privilege of discovering Vanuatu Cacao.
