I have just had a newsletter from my (fabulous and very helpful)supplier detailing new additions etc, amongst them, milk chocolate from Carma (part of Callebaut I think).
They state that they now stock "most highly acclaimed Swiss Claire from Carma, recently voted ‘World's Best Milk Chocolate'"

Has anyone tried this? Is it any good? I have to say I'm a bit sceptical despite the seeming lack of any outstanding milk chocolates in general...who voted it "best" and what were the benchmarks against which it was tested?

I've not tried it but here is a quote from Carma website:

quote:


The distinguished Accademia Maestri Pasticceri Italiani recently brought together Italy’s top pastry chefs for a series of blind tastings.

Claire "Swiss Top" won the Gold Medal with a record score for its unrivalled aroma, delectable auburn-brown tone, smoothness and consistent, lingering melt in the mouth. The Carma team selected exceptional ingredients for Claire. Precious cacao beans... and of course superior quality, genuine Swiss milk!

L'Accademia Maestri Pasticceri Italiani is an exclusively Callebaut-sponsored (and I suspect Callebaut-founded) organization. How surprising they select a Callebaut product as the world's best...Rather go for a bit more independent selections...With this I would not say Carma milk chocolate is not good.

Plus, it turns out that the product selected - doesn't meet the standard of identity for milk chocolate 😎
