Chocolate review: Valrhona Lait Jivara

I seldom feature milk chocolate in this blog as I usually get dark chocolates whenever I get a chance. That, of course, is quite often and I am able to browse a few shelves once in a while including at some favorite shops. Valrhona's Lait Jivara chocolate bar was part of a box and price-wise it made sense to get the box than buy individual chocolate bars.

Valrhona's Lait Jivara was a very pleasant surprise as it was probabl among the best if not the best milk chocolate we've tasted. The chocolate was smooth, not so sweet and with just the right bitterness from the 40% cacao it claimed to contain. I thought it was good for dessert and the wife thought it would have went well with some wine. It probably would have and fortunately, we have another bar in another box we have yet to open and enjoy.
