I love Michoko Noir, the dark chocolate coated soft caramels made in France. I discovered them in France and I’ve even seen them at my local French pâtisserie sold by the piece for $0.75 each.
They’re buttery and delicious and totally worth it, but I wanted bags of the stuff!
Recently, I ordered a couple bags of Michoko Noir through French Wink, the digital multivendor marketplace and store located in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. They feature many made-in-France items: beauty products, kitchen linens, toys, and more.
Of course, I suppose I could just eat another popular chocolate covered caramel candy that’s widely available here in the U.S.
But one reason I prefer Michoko Noir is that it has a higher cacao content (64%), so it’s less sweet, but more intense. Plus, it just feels a bit more special knowing that it was made in France — I’m a Francophile, after all!
Have you seen the movie “Ratatouille” where Rémy sees fireworks after taking a bite out of cheese and strawberry at the same time?
Well, that was me after dinner one night! I savored a Michoko Noir and then took a sip of a California Cabernet Sauvignon and the combination tantalized my tastebuds!🍷🍫
