Today was Day #8 of Chocolate and Salt Caramel Theme Week; and also Day #2 Chocolate and Flower Theme Week.

This attractive, single origin, dark (70%) chocolate bar, from schokolade artisan chocolates (based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), was decorated with white chocolate, and was filled with an appealing layer of caramel filling.

The flower in question today was lavender -- in the form of lavender sea salt. I could not taste any lavender, which was disappointing. However, if just the salt was infused with this floral flavor, then the dark chocolate and caramel filling in this bar could have overwhelmed this subtle flavor.

Note: posts and pictures were delayed this week due to travel.
