Trader Joe's
The Dark Chocolate Lover's Chocolate Bar - 85% Cacao (Columbia)
Very Good +

Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Single Origin Theme Week.

It's hard to beat Trader Joe's for interesting single origin chocolate bars, offered at a reasonable price. What a great South American chocolate geography lesson this week has been. After exploring chocolates from Ecuador for the past few days, I moved over to Columbia today. This Trader Joe's 85% cacao dark bar -- advertised as "smooth and fruity" (with a light, pleasant root beer-like note at the beginning I'd add) --  came from the Tumaco (Pacific Coastal) Region of Columbia.

This bar is amazing. I just bit into one for the first time and thought of you, and just HAD to see if you blogged about it. Of course you have!

P/S I loved the chocolates you brought to the gallery opening!
