Golden berries have gotten more popular this year, and are turning up in higher end health food offerings. It was difficult to taste them in this 70% dark bar. Dark chocolate has a way of overpowering other less dominant flavors; but, I liked their tart golden raisin-like taste enough that I'd like to try them again, perhaps by themselves next time.

And Lucuma? I'm not sure I know much about this, other than this product from a South American fruit tree was listed as "organic sundried lucuma powder" on the ingredients list. More research is needed.
