zotter mitzi blue nutmixI love the name of this bar.  Wait – do I call it a bar?  I mean, it is a circle, not a rectangle and it is well funky.  I mean, I love the circle, I love the triangles and I love the thinness because I can let it melt.  According to the Zotter website this bar is “an irresistibly delicate disc of fine chocolate in a square pack. A totally new chocolate experience, made from ‘bean to bar’ by Zotter. Twenty four deliciously innovative varieties for chocolate aficionados to discover.” And I got one.  Well two actually.

The chocolate itself is different.  The first thing I noticed after having eaten a lot of Soma and cooking with a lot of Soma is how different this way but it could be the vanilla.  Soma is vanilla (and all additives) free so tasting chocolate with additives is a bit jarring after that.  Once I got used to it I really enjoyed it.

I had difficulty picking out the unique flavour of the chocolate but overall it was very nice and I loved the shape!
