|Scharffen Berger, one of America’s three nationally-distributed bean-to-bar chocolate companies (the term for firms that buy raw cacao beans, roast them and make their own couverture—the other two are Guittard and organic chocolatier Theo), have introduced two new bars, the Milk Almond bar and the Antilles Limited Series bar. Limited Series bars are manufactured in small batches and cannot be replicated, as the tastes produced by the crop of beans vary from year to year, similar to a wine vintage. The 75% cacao Antilles bar is produced from cacao beans sourced from the Antilles region of the Caribbean. Milk Almond blends the crunch of deep roasted almonds with a hint of sea salt in Scharffen Berger’s 41% cacao milk chocolate. Those who like an almond chocolate bar will welcome the high quality. Those who want the combined flavors of salt and chocolate will find that the “sea salt” is a bit of a red herring: it is just a hint, barely discernable, the result of very lightly-salted almonds.
