Selections
Couverture: some Felchlin
Dark Bar – Madagascar Criollo; tamed, diluted, almost shy, none of the usual sparks that fly from the ‘Red Island’; a practical shame - is it Africa or Andres?
Grand Cru – best of the selection; creamy Swiss identity keeps it right there, never letting chocolate interfere w/ nationalism
Milk Chocolate Bar – instant grab; more Swiss ID... vanillin-injected milk pwdr – subprime for young a-dolts
Swiss Cakes – warm afterglow via Grand Marnier compliments insubstantial cocoa transfiguration
