Stop me before I eat this bar in one sitting! I’m loving the combo of white chocolate and pistachios — but I’m getting ahead of myself. This is the Amedei Cioccolato Al Latte Bianco Con Pistacchi — a 29% cacao white chocolate bar with 10% Bronte pistachios. It’s made by Amedei, a chocolate company from Tuscany.
The white chocolate here is sweet and creamy with a distinctive vanilla flavor. It’s not overwhelming like many white chocolate, but rather subtle and bright. The flavor of the pistachios is perfectly combined with the chocolate — leaving a fresh green, nutty flavor at the finish.
Now this bar was a splurge at $11.95 for a 3.5 oz (100 gr) bar, but I have to say that it is well worth it. Everything about this bar was perfect — the shape, thickness of each square of chocolate, even the packaging. Let me explain about my thing with packaging. It usually takes me 3-5 sitting to finish a bar, so I want a nice wrapper. This was packaged in a heavyweight paper box and wrapped in a thick paperbacked foil. Perfect! (I recently had some bars from Charles Chocolate and they were wrapped in such a ridiculously thin foil that it was impossible to wrap them back up without tearing it to shreds.)
So I’m afraid I’m ruined, I now want to try some of their other pricey bars. And if you do too, you can get yours at Chocosphere like I did. (I have absolutely no affiliation with Chocosphere — they are just one of the few places I’ve found that carries all these lovely chocolate bars!)
