Sumary of Notes on chocolate: to roast or not to roast?:
- I had a bar a good few months ago that I still think of wistfully nearly every day: Zara’s caramel and sesame bar.
- It’s not currently on sale (the flavours vary), but there is nearly always a caramel option available in the selection and currently it’s hazelnut and caramel, £3.20 (50-60g).
- I think it’s hard to get the perfect caramel consistency and this bar really has it.
- But this week was all about quite grownup chocolate – Tosier’s 65% Ghana DarkMylk with toasted buckwheat (£6.50, 60g), had a glorious nutty, toasted bread taste, which almost has a Horlicks finish.
