This unique bar from Zotter contains no sugar at all. Imagine a 70% dark chocolate with all the sugar replaced with milk powder. What you end up with is a chocolate that has all the intensity of a dark chocolate and the creaminess of a milk chocolate, but none of the sweetness of either.
As Annalisa Barbieri wrote in her Notes on Chocolate column:
“There’s one bar I can’t get enough of at the moment… It’s not going to be for everyone – due warning – but I love it and here’s why. There’s no added sugar, all the sugar in it is from the milk, so the sugar per 100g is only 12g, which is very low for most chocolate, let alone a milk one. But this bar is not like any other 70% cocoa bar you’ll try – it’s creamy, but it’s also super satisfying so you just don’t feel like pigging out on it.”
