Today was Day #4 of Dark Chocolate and Nuts Theme Week.

Peanut butter and jelly, also known as PB and J or PBJ, generally refers to a type of sandwich in the U.S. However, some of the most original chocolate flavor combinations borrow from food favorites like this. This Patric Chocolate PBJ OMG -- a rendition of an American lunchbox sandwich staple in bar form -- blended dark roasted peanut butter and cane sugar with cacao that had "naturally occurring jam-like bursts of berry flavor."

And, in fact, I did taste peanut butter and jelly notes in this dark chocolate bar. The talented maker(s) at Patric Chocolate (Columbia, MO) handcraft their bars with great skill.
