Do you like milk chocolate? 2021 might just be the best year for your palate then!
There are now more options than ever on the market to enjoy chocolate in its creamy and sweet version. Milk chocolate is usually made of at least 20-25% cocoa, milk powder and sugar, often including flavorings like vanilla. However, chocolate makers are getting creative with many different kinds of milk, vegan alternatives and mouth-watering inclusions to give a creative twist to this classic.
Here are all the alternatives currently available on the market that you can try out to step up your milk chocolate game:
Dark Milk chocolate – it’s a relatively new kind of chocolate that contains a higher percentage of cocoa than classic milk chocolate, anywhere between 50 and 70%. It doesn’t have the intensity of dark chocolate, neither the extreme sweetness of milk chocolate. A balanced milk chocolate for all palates.
Vegan Mylk chocolate – from the classic coconut milk to the trendiest oat milk, there is now a large plethora of choices when it comes to milk chocolate made with plant-based drinks, also rice and almond. Thanks to a rising global demand, the options available are only getting wider.
Flavored Milk chocolate – milk chocolate is often a great base for additional flavors that enhance the tasting experience. Fruits, nuts, sea salt, flowers, teas, grains and more! The options to give more flavor and texture to milk chocolate now are truly endless.
Unusual Milk chocolate – not only cow’s milk or plant-based milks. Some chocolate makers are experimenting also with sheep’s, goat’s, buffalo’s and camel’s milk to give distinctive nuances to their milk chocolates.
Sugar-Free Milk chocolate – by popular demand, now chocolate brands are manufacturing milk chocolate that has no sugar added to it, for those who want to enjoy the smoothness of milk chocolate that fits in their low-sugar lifestyle.
