The Bonnat family have been making chocolate in Voiron, France for over 130 years. It was current head Stephane Bonnat’s parents, Raymond and Nicole Bonnat who pioneered Bonnat’s first single origin bars in the 1980’s. Stephane has continued his parent’s tradition and the company now works with 35 different plantations worldwide to produce their bars.
A classic dark milk chocolate bar that is a must for those who like their chocolate smooth and creamy, but without too much added sugar. When we tasted this bar, we detected a slight smokiness throughout and some subtle hints of nuts at the finish. It is a remarkably mellow bar, with a generous proportion of cocoa butter and milk giving this undeniably rich bar a wonderfully creamy flavor. However, as this is a dark milk chocolate, this bar gets much of its sweetness from the natural sugars of the milk and the cocoa plant. In fact, when compared to mainstream milk chocolate, it actually contains relatively little added sugar.
