This chocolate bar from Italy was ok. The judgments varied from average to a little bit above average.

Baratti E Milano´s chocolates aren´t readily available. We bought ours in a shop for Italian delicacies. It was in the higher price range; $ 7.

About the chocolate testing

We were three persons who tried this chocolate: Me (Jill), Anders and my mum (Eva). Anders usually goes for somewhat sweeter chocolates than me. It also should be added that my mum probably prefers quantity before quality when it comes to sweets.

About  Baratti E Milano

Ferdinando Baratti och Edoardo Milano founded a café in Turin 1858. When they eventually opened the café /shop in new premises in 1875, they were granted the honour of the Savoy Coat of Arms by the king. This Coat of Arms is still used in their logo. The same premises are still used even if it is now extended and remodelled. The Minister of Culture and Environment has decided that the building and it´s furniture have to be protected. Now the café is fully restored to its original splendour.
