Valrhona Dark & Milk Chocolate Mendiants

After meeting Raphael Casteau at Premier Gourmet’s chocolate tasting he sent me a variety of Valrhona products to review. Among them was a box of Mendiants. I happen to be fond of this style of chocolate: flat discs of milk or dark with a trio of hazelnut, pistachio and dried apricot.

Though I am generally not a a fan of milk chocolate, unless it’s a dark milk, the sweetness did complement the nuts. Still, I liked the dark ones better. Part of the fascination with Mendiants comes from their jewel-like appearance.  This was enhanced by lovely packaging in leaf green and black.
