While today was Day #1 of Chocolate and Berry Theme Week -- with blueberries being the featured berry today, perhaps the most interesting addition to today's single origin Criollo chocolate bar was the incorporation of dragon fruit. A 65% dark chocolate base made it a bit more difficult to detect a distinctive dragon fruit flavor; however, the unusual fruit added attractive rosy color and a slightly chewy texture.
