Weiße is German for 'white'. With enough hip-hop bending, it rhymes with 'vibe'. And resonates with 'dreaming of a White Christmas'.

Happy Holidays to C-spotters™ everywhere whose support has made this a rewarding first year for our website.

The Daily Review is taking a break & will resume on Tuesday, January 3, 2012.

Until then, enjoy the rest of the site & the holiday season. And imagine: if humanity can allow peace to prevail on Earth one day out of the year, then maybe it can extend the gesture for the other 364 of them too.

With gratitude,
the C-spot
Appearance   4.7 / 5
Color: taupe-topaz (clearly not your average "White" bar)
Surface: ideal
Temper: soft shimmer
Snap: out of its league to rival a Semi-Dark
Aroma   8.9 / 10
coconut custard & rice pudding -> toasted butted bread crumbs with honey-maple syrup drizzled atop -> vanilla cream the icing on this unusual cake of a bar (+ some putty to congeal it)
Mouthfeel   12.8 / 15
Texture: rather light architecture for the queen of fats
Melt: glides effortlessly
Flavor   46 / 50
fine vanilla frosting with a yuzu edge -> powdered honey 'n cream -> maple backdrop -> candied malt -> umami salts bring up the rear
Quality   18.3 / 20
Very much in congress with the newer breed of undeodorized Whites (the Dantas, Vestris and Askinosies).

And a fitting companion to Zotter's other White -- Kokos.

Unique in its own way however (to suit Zotter himself): a rare Crossover FlavPro for the White category.

The only infraction (& slight at that): powdered milk & cream suggest short conche, felt readily at the front, both in Taste as well as Texture. By the mid-section, however, the integration joins up smoothly to melt unimpeded toward the finish.

So much so, hardly a hint of cocoa butter shows thru. Instead it lays down a canvas for spices (raw cane & vanilla) to color it.

Add one more crown jewel to The Zotter Collection.

ING: raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, full cream milk powder (21%), sweet whey, soy lecithin, vanilla, salt
