This is my second Tiroler Edle bar. The first, one, I bought myself in Vienna, about three years ago. This one here was a gift from my sister.
The Tiroler Edle chocolate bars are milk chocolate bars with milk from Tyrolian (very cute) cows. The chocolate (couverture) for the purissima bars are from Domori (for the filled bars, it’s from Felchlin).
I like milk chocolate bars with a high cocoa content. In fact, I absolutely loved the bar I tried before from Tiroler Edle. But this bar here, is the first bar I ever tried where the whole content list is cocoa mass, milk poweder and cocoa butter. There is no sugar in this chocolate.
I have a sweet tooth, I drink my coffee usually with sugar, and I like sweet chocolate bars. So, the first piece I’ve tried of this bar, the somewhat tartly, dry almost furry feeling in may mouth felt strange. But then, the chocolate started to melt, and I experiences a fruity, creamy, strong chocolate flavour.
While I can’t say that a little bit of sugar would be fine, I have to say, this bar works the way it is.
It would also work with sugar. As is shown in the 75% bar I tried before. But it also showed me, that I do like bars without sugar. I didn’t like the 100% cocoa bars I’ve tried before (uneatable for me). But with milk, the cocoa gets fine (as in refined) enough for me to be palatable and enjoyable.
And the bar works excellent with a glass of red wine. Here, it’s maybe even better than a bar with sugar. Pure harmony.
