A white chocolate Christmas?

I’ve said for years that white chocolate is not chocolate. Most of it tastes like a bowl of sugar with Crisco mixed in. No flavor at all.

But since I am exploring all things buttermilk, I picked up a bar of Olive and Sinclair’s Salt & Pepper Buttermilk White Chocolate. The artisan chocolate company is based in Nashville, Tenn., so a Southern ingredient like buttermilk was natural for them to use.

The tangy flavor of buttermilk does make this bar less sweet than the usual white chocolate, and the salt and pepper give an unusual bite. While it won’t replace the darkest of dark chocolate in my heart, this is a white chocolate bar for people who don’t like white chocolate but who have open minds.
