It's rare that I feature white chocolates in this blog's chocolate review. Recently, we got a bar as part of a box of Valrhona chocolates we purchased at an airport duty free shop. The Clairvoyant is not a fan of white chocolates so she just tasted a bit as she usually does and then asked for more. That, to me, was an indication she liked this one compared to other white chocolates she's tasted before. Of course, I ended up eating the rest of the bar but over a few days. I still found this a bit on the sweet side and as they say in the Philippines, nakaka-umay, a term for which I don't exactly think we have a translation in English for.
|Valrhona's Blanc Ivoire is basically white chocolate with raspberry bits|
|Details on the chocolate at the back of package|
|The chocolate claims to have at least 35% cacao. I thought this was par with the lower-priced or 'pedestrian' dark chocolates|
To be fair, I thought this is a good chocolate and should be quite enjoyable to many especially those who like white chocolates. I certainly wouldn't mind having this considering box sets of Valrhona basically provide a sampler of their chocolates, which include whites and milk chocolates.-
