This dark bar from Cuba was quite good. From what I can gather, most of the cacao on this large island nation is grown in the south/east part of the island, and I'm not sure how this chocolate is made (e.g. in a cooperative). Regardless, this dark bar broke with a loud snap and had nice texture and taste.

Yesterday I sampled a milk chocolate dolphin, and today I tried a little (solid milk) chocolate turtle, from a company based in Cancun, Mexico. Judging from the picture on the box (photo to be posted upon my return), these turtles looked very happy snorkeling around the Caribbean. I was a little disappointed to find that little turtle didn't come with a snorkel tube and mask.
