ChocolateBet: March 25, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

1/2 bar
Michel Cluizel (Paris)
Noir Infini 99% cacao
Very Good
Wt. ~.5 oz. (~15 g.) in 1/2 bar; 1.05 oz. (30 grams) total
Calories: not clear (~72 calories for 1/2 bar)
Cost: $0 (gift)
Purchased from: (don't know as it was a gift; possibly Dean and DeLuca)

Thank you George for sharing this find!

A hard wax-brittle start gave way to rich flavors (think unsweetened baker's chocolate and you'll get the general idea).

The very high 99% cacao content was achieved by adding just a small pinch of cane sugar, and omitting milk or any other fillers that might dilute the chocolate. The absence of sugar lets the cacao flavors and maker's skill shine through.
