Bar of the Week: Cluizel's Maralumi Lait

Milk chocolate lovers, you've been waiting patiently, so here's a Bar of the Week for you!  From French chocolate maker Michel Cluizel, Maralumi Lait is a 47% milk chocolate made from single origin cacao grown in Papua New Guinea.  Here's what Cluizel has to say about it:

“...'Maralumi' plantation lies on a land rich in alluvial deposits. Its strongly aromatic cocoa beans blend well with milk to make a distinguished and powerful combination. In the mouth, the characteristic notes of bananas, red berries, and blueberries emanate progressively in an herbaceous harmony and then in “salty caramel.”

(If you like the sound of that but prefer dark chocolate, Maralumi also comes in a dark version...)

You can sample Maralumi Lait at our Braven store in downtown Bellevue on Wednesday, March 31st, or at our Queen Anne store on Saturday, April 2nd.
