Updated! Perhaps you have heard me rave about this chocolatier a time or two. Their truffles and holiday treats are indeed extraordinary. But today I’m talking about an “everyday essential”, No Whey Milkless Chocolate Bars.
Yes, squares of chocolate bars are consumed daily in our household, whenever Tony or I needs a dessert hit. But I’d be lying if I said we were cacao connoisseurs. Though we do have our favorites, the type of chocolate we’re currently raving about is usually mood dependent. That said, the Milkless Chocolate Bars are good staples for sweet cravings. And since they are made in a top allergen-free facility, they’re a great truly dairy-free option.
Tasting Notes for No Whey Milkless Chocolate Bars
Each bar weighs in at 1.75 ounces, and is perfectly sectioned into bite-sized indulgences. A few of us have sampled these bars, so I’ve included all of our notes here. But feel free to comment with your thoughts for others to read, too!
“Milk” Milkless Chocolate Bars
The flavor of this bar was very familiar to me, since I had sampled some of No Whey’s seasonal chocolate shapes. Those are always available in both “Milk” and Dark varieties. It was quite sweet, slightly milky, gently chocolaty, and fairly smooth. I always enjoy the underlying cocoa buttery consistency that No Whey nails.
But interestingly enough, I really noticed a strong essence of vanilla in this bar. Although it did have that classic cocoa backdrop, it reminded me immensely of white chocolate. To verify, I parted with some squares of the “Milk”, and asked Tony to sample them. He concurred that the bar definitely had more of a white chocolate taste than pure milk chocolate. Since he has converted fully to dark chocolate, this bar was a bit too sweet for him, but my taste buds enjoyed the uniqueness.
Sarah and her daughter also sampled these bars, and sent the s’mores picture above. She proclaimed them “S’mores tested, kid approved AND adult approved.” They thought the “Milk” bars had the mild flavor of milk chocolate, the creamy texture, and the meltability.
Dark Milkless Chocolate Bars
Shown at right next to the “Milk” bar, No Whey’s Dark bar was even smoother than the milky version. It had a mellower and more buttery taste than is typical with dark chocolate bars. Overall, I would describe it as “relaxed” without any bitterness or overtly sweet notes.
I think this is an excellent bar for those of us who value the underlying richness of cocoa butter. It’s also a good pick for kids and adults who may be timid around the bittersweet flavors of many dark chocolate brands.
Polar Dream White Milkless Chocolate Bars
I had the chance to trial Polar Dream in its early days. But the chocolatier, Yochy, asked me not to fully review it at that time, since he was still tweaking the formula. I thought it was very sweet, but overall tasty back then. However, I haven’t trialed it again. Fortunately, Leah has:
My excitement when I stumbled upon this vegan white chocolate was almost embarrassing. I had never seen a vegan white chocolate bar before and didn’t even think, I just impulsively bought it. I was so excited to dig in that I barely made it home before ripping open the packaging, breaking off a little square, and popping it in my mouth. Sweet, mellow, and creamy, it was everything I remembered about white chocolate. This seriously good white chocolate is tasty on its own or baked into cookies! Yes, it gets perfectly melty, but still holds its own. I am so impressed by this stuff!

The sweet side of chocolate
Definitely on the sweet side of chocolate, all three bars have a rich cocoa buttery consistency and are virtually free of cacao bitterness. The Dark is smooth, rich and just slightly more grown-up. The “Milk” was sweet, like you might taste on a typical candy bar, and was almost more vanilla than cacao. The White is very sweet, creamy, and does indeed work well in baking.
