Taste test: This large, thin chocolate bar had a 2x5 grid of large rectangular sections, with illustrations of cocoa pods on the tops of each one, closed and opened versions on alternating sections. The promise of crunchy caramel and sea salt inside had me intrigued. I broke off two sections and didn't see any clear signs of the caramel on top, bottom or cross-section, but the cross-section did look somewhat gritty.
I bit in to find that there was indeed something crunchy hidden inside, with a great taste that had bits of caramel as well as some contrasting salt. It reminded me a bit of the toffee/milk chocolate combination in Skor and Heath, though there was a much higher proportion of chocolate in this case. Whatever proportion of crunchy caramel there was proved sufficient to liven up some already excellent milk chocolate. Really nice!

Smell test: Pretty mild, but I could notice both caramel and milk chocolate.
From the package: “Every spring, processions of local dairy farmers and their cattle leave villages villages at the foot of the Swiss mountains to climb to the lush alpine pastureland that will be their home in the months ahead. Their departure is marked by festivities as the villages give husbands, fathers and brothers a rousing send-off. The young boys and girls wear local costume and accompany the procession as it leaves the village. Some of the boys are dressed as herdsmen and carry carved milk pails like the boy of the MilkBoy logo.”
