This dark chocolate bar had a nice smooth flavor throughout. TCHO has selected cacao from different areas of the world that highlight different aspects of natural chocolate flavors - much like you would see in certain wines.

This bar was "nutty" (the light brown segment in the TCHO wheel pictured above). TCHO also has produced chocolate with citrusy, earthy, floral and other flavor profiles.
