Alright. That mushroom bar by Vosges that I wrote about yesterday may have been a little out there in the flavor department, at least conceptually, if not very heavy on the mushroom flavor. But it’s what they’re known for – pushing the boundaries of sensible flavor combinations involving chocolate. Today’s bar, however, is a bit more normal: the Goji bar is a deep milk chocolate bar that hosts Tibetan Goji berries and pink Himalayan salt.
The bar has a creamy aroma with subtle fruity notes, and the base chocolate has a smooth melt with strong caramel and light cream notes.
The salt and goji berries are both well-distributed throughout the bar, resulting in a uniform tasting experience that more chocolatiers should strive to replicate.
The Goji berries are a bit tart, but are generally not noticeable aside from the slight added crunch.
Now the salt, that hits pretty soon in the melt of the bar, and is present in every bite. While this was a very enjoyable milk chocolate bar with a bit of salt for interest, a bar advertised as a Goji berry bar should, well, feature the flavor of Goji berries.
Have you had Goji berries? With or without chocolate?
