”The best milk chocolate in the world” – according to the assessment of chocolate tester Georg Bernardini, who tested 2,700 products from 271 companies in 38 countries for his book “The Chocolate Tester” (Der Schokoladentester). According to Bernadini “Zotter milk chocolate takes first place thanks to its harmony. It is not sweet nor is it too bitter and it melts wonderfully. The chocolate is milky-creamy but at the same time, it is very chocolaty with a strong cocoa flavour. You can really taste the flavour of Nicaraguan cocoa. A true masterpiece.”
From lava-spewing volcanoes to idyllic, far-away beaches, Nicaragua's natural landscape measures up to some of the world’s best. But a series of clashes between anti-government protestors and the supporters of President Daniel Ortega has caused the death of 325 Nicaraguans in the spring of 2018 and placed a cloud of uncertainty over the entire country. Growing high-quality cocoa has a direct impact on the livelihood of hundreds of families who rely on it. This bar that was named the best milk chocolate in the world contributes directly into the development of Nicaraguan fine cocoa industry.
