Now milk chocolate lovers can get a taste for the superb flavours offered by Pralus in the form of this Javan 45% bar which goes by the name of Melissa. In French this means "lemon balm" - despite the fact there is none present in the list of ingredients the flavour does become apparent.
Some might shudder at the thought of creating a milk bar with fine Criollo beans, but we feel that our own sensibilities shouldn't constrain a bean. We should, instead, explore the range of possibilities that it can offer and here Francois Pralus has create a very interesting milk bar which has caramelised nuts and dark toffee present in abundance.
It can be seen that this chocolate is a great introduction for people that have traditionally enjoyed lower quality milk chocolate into the world of fine chocolate with the aim of perhaps moving into softer dark bars - primarily because there are unusual flavours present here, not least the lemon balm with the chocolate finishes with.
