“Is it a cake? No, it is not a cake, but it does maintain its traditional flavors. If there is a dessert that Chileans love, it is the tres leches dessert, that is why we pay tribute to it by incorporating a caramel, creamy and tasty new flavor to our line of endemic flavors of Chile. A classic Chilean dessert in a chocolate bar! With 38% cocoa and white chocolate, this flavor will undoubtedly be a tabletop favorite for everyone who enjoys a sweet touch after meals where its caramel and toffee flavors and a unique golden color stand out.”
