Fjåk - Milk Chocolate - Brown Cheese 45%Fjak
Oh to be a goat grazing on the grounds of Undredal, set in a picturesque mountainous fjord, a scene taken straight out of a storybook. This is where goats outnumber people nearly 5:1. Imagine singing the sound of music in a rustic little village while milking some goats. Such may be the life of these Norwegian people that helped produce part of the milkiness you taste in this bar. The juxtaposition of the fast-paced city life against the rugged agricultural livelihood of farmers makes this bar a real tempting escape from reality. And we’d have it no other way.
Round creamy milk chocolate with a crunch of Norwegian goat cheese from Undredal Stølsysteri & Nordic salt from North Sea Salt Works.

As the first bean-to-bar chocolate maker in Norway, Agur and Siv - the co-founders of Fjåk Sjokolade, infused natural Nordic elements of the finest quality into ethically and sustainably traded cacao beans to create beautiful, au naturel, award-winning chocolates. “Fjåk” roughly translates to “loveable” or “honest” in the Hardanger dialect, which roots this chocolate maker to the ancient fine craft of chocolate making and spreading bona fide love and candidness for craft chocolate. The excellence of their chocolates speaks for itself, as Fjåk had won 7 awards for all 7 bars that they had put up for the Academy of Chocolate Awards within 9 months of being in the market.
I would order this again! The cheese is discernible and adds to the richness of the chocolate. Pretty yummy.
