Purchased from: Vosges, in Las Vegas, CA
I was interested in including Chicago-based Vosges's new Cherry Rooibos Bar in Chocolate and Cherry Theme Week. Fortunately (for me) Vosges has a Las Vegas, NV, location -- which is at least 1,000 miles closer to me than Chicago. And I just happen to be in Las Vegas for a few days. This bar is described as having "African rooibos tea, dried Michigan cherries, and deep milk (45% cacao) chocolate." The flavors were fairly subtle, but pleasant in the small piece that I ate. It's tempting to eat more and find out if larger chunks of cherry are embedded elsewhere in this bar; but I needed to leave room for dinner this evening.
Today was Day #8 of Chocolate and Cherry Theme Week.
