Milk chocolate disc reviews

March 17, 2015

A while back I had compared two unsweetened baking chocolate brands and examined the flavors and mouthfeel capacities for snacking and using in desserts. Today I have two milk chocolate brands suited for the same purposes.

Madecasse chocolate

I had high hopes for the Madecasse chocolate since it was my favorite as an unsweetened chocolate. However, with the milk chocolate discs, they tasted more like a smashed up version of the 100% cacao with milk and sugar instead of a smooth blend of the ingredients. I also wasn’t entirely convinced that the fruity flavors of the Madegascar beans were a good fit with milk in the first place. Also, these discs also had some chalkiness in the mouthfeel which was slightly unpleasant.

Ingredients: cane sugar, whole milk powder, cocoa beans, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural vanilla powder.

Gaia chocolate

The Gaia discs were smoother and much less chalky than the Madecasse discs. The cacao flavor in the Gaia was more toned down and earthy, which made for a nice pairing with the milk and sugar. In my opinion, these discs represented a good, solid milk chocolate that is neither too sweet nor too milky, and is perfect for any kind of use and consumption.

Ingredients: organic sugar, organic milk powder, organic cocoa butter, organic chocolate liquor, organic soy lecithin, and organic vanilla.

Chocolate discs

The baking disc idea is pretty fun. I personally like discs better than chocolate chips. They melt in the mouth a lot easier, which then translates into an easy process when melting for a dessert recipe.
