Vivani 50% Dark Milk with Coconut Blossom Nectar

Vivani is a German chocolate company, of whose chocolate can be found in Planet Organic, Wholefoods, most health-stores in the UK. All the ingredients in this chocolate are organic: coconut blossom sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, cream powder, bourbon vanilla. The use of coconut blossom sugar is particularly interesting, I know that it isn't as sweet as cane sugar and contains more health benefits than cane sugar. Vivani pride themselves in not using soy lecithin
An aroma of flowers, vanilla, coffee. In taste there was bitterness, flowers, vanilla, dairy (ricotta), smoke. There's a distinct bitterness (far from unpleasant!) because, even though sugar is the first ingredient, coconut blossom isn't as sweet as cane. I don't suppose much of the Panama comes through, but none the less it was a good chocolate. A chocolate that would appeal to those who solely like dark and solely like milk chocolate
