Sand Dollar

by Graycliff
Info Details
Country Bahamas   
Type White Chocolate   (29% cacáo-content)
Flavor Earthen   
Style New School      
QE I, II, III ad perpetuity (no, hedonists, not the ocean liner but the monetary policy), ridiculously low bottom-scraping interest rates, & inflated assets all make the current global reserve currency about as strong as sand (&, no doubt, as many if not more than grains of them floating around the world).

In economies like these, this bar might be a better investment.

If nothing else, at least it can be eaten as a real bitcoin.
Appearance   4.9 / 5
Color: lemon-lime
Surface: perfection
Temper: blinding… wear shades
Snap: more plucked-up than its heavier Milk brethren
Aroma   7.7 / 10
very traditional but with a higher lemon-ness quotient covering for some fairly potent casein milk proteins
Mouthfeel   13.2 / 15
Texture: bottom soft
Melt: well, like… buttah
Flavor   44 / 50
milky start -> casein -> burrows into salt & umami -> lemon streams over from the Aroma -> browned-butter / White Chocolate mouse amidst prevailing drafts of calcium carbonate to mimic the sand dollar of sea urchin fame
Quality   16.4 / 20
Color fools of a partially undeodorized cocoa butter. Tantamount to half-pregnant, it just ain't so.

The added depth of tone to the hue owes to yellow dairy butter.

Evidently so too the salt (none listed among the ingredients below) which lends some savory & checks the sugar from over cloying.

In the process it also deepens the depth of tone in the Flavor... in a subtler way compared to other Whites by simultaneously moderating the presence of vanilla. Again, very judicious use of that by Graycliff which possesses the hands of a neuro-taste bud surgeon wielding a vanilla bean.

Once bitten this becomes impossible to untaste. And that's a good thing.

INGREDIENTS: sugar, cocoa butter, butter, vanilla, milk powder
