The award for the best milk chocolate bar will be presented at the Salon du Chocolat in Paris during the presentation of the 2017 guide Croqueurs de chocolate. The award recognizes the perfect balance between the Criollo Javablond chocolate and the Tyrolese grey cow’s milk, fragrant of the pastures of Tyrol in western Austria.
The high-quality ingredients form the unmistakable aroma and flavor of the Javagrey. The milk’s natural sweetness finds its equilibrium in the aromatic Javablond Domori. The cacao, which comes from the island of Java, is known for its strong contrast of spiciness with an excellent roundness, incredible persistence, and distinct sweetness with notes of tobacco, red fruits, smoke, and underbrush.
The Javagrey bar is part of Domori’s D-Fusion product line created for milk chocolate lovers, where fine cacao is paired with prized and often unusual ingredients. In addition to goat, donkey, camel, and sheep’s milk, D-Fusion also includes chocolate bars made with Matcha green tea, Moroccan Nanah mint, Indian chili pepper, Guèrande salt, Piedmont IGP hazelnuts, and cappuccino.
