Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Peppermint Candy Cane Theme Week.
This organic, fair trade, Theo Chocolate dark (70% cacao) bar flavored with peppermint had just the right level of sweetness -- not enough to obscure flavors, not overly sweet.

This bar was just thin enough to make the peppermint and chocolate flavors more accessible (important during winter weather when temperatures, and chocolate, may be colder). The dark "bite" that often marks single origin chocolates with more pronounced flavors/notes arrived later in the tasting curve.
