Chocolate M.I.A. in this vanilla milkshaker, sweetened in honey drops, that comes dangerously close to a cloy toy except the bean directs a lot of the action from deep within the trenches.

Fine Milk Chocolate is an elaborately processed affair. Here recessed chocolate just bucketed with milk; really an interplay between cream & vanilla accented by honey drops, as if the maker is too rushed to be bothered (save for a kind roast influencing the progression). The result – a sapid confection which says something about the immense talent of Marcolini even when he seems to care less.
