This rich, creamy dark milk chocolate is loaded with fruity and caramel notes. At times, it feels like you are eating bunch of fresh blueberries covered in homemade dulce de leche. It’s made with cacao beans from the Pangoa Cooperative in Peru together with powdered whole milk sourced from the COLUN Dairy Coop in Southern Chile.
