Chapon Fevory Dark Milk Chocolate 58% Mini Bar is one luscious little rectangle. It’s as delectable on the inside as it is pretty on the outside. The dark milk is full-bodied with a slight and pleasant hint of acidity to add complexity. The flavor notes are caramel and vanilla bean creme brûlée. This bar contains finely ground nibs which create an exceptionally delicate crunch and texture to an otherwise silky smooth bar.
The talented maker of this miniature bar is multi-awarded pâttisier-chocolatier Patrice Chapon, who once supplied ice creams and sorbets to Buckingham Palace. It's no surprise that he was invited to make the Queen's frozen desserts. Patrice's ice cream is voluptuous and silky, infused with ambrosial vanilla and opulent cinnamon.
While in England, he became fascinated with the concept of making his own bean-to-bar chocolate courtesy of the alluring array of chocolates at Harrod's. Patrice now has five chocolate boutiques in France, three of which are in Paris as well as his own chocolate mousse truck that traverses the streets of the City of Lights.
Chapon's packaging is replete with fanciful whimsy, but the chocolate nestled inside is serious (and seriously delicious)! Several times each year, Patrice's journeys take him all over the globe, from the lush forests of Brazil to the Millot or Sambirano plantations in Madagascar. He feels compelled to meet the inspiring cacao farmers, learn about the beans, and source the finest vanilla, pink berry peppers and other spices for his indulgent creations.

I'm drawn to Chapon because the company shares the same ultimate goal as Barometer Chocolate - pure pleasure!
