I tried another stone-ground rustic chocolate today, for Day#7 of Chocolate and Pepper Theme Week. This Cherries, Almonds and Black Peppercorns bar from ChocoVivo was made from Trinitario beans from Tabasco, Mexico, and was described on the package label as "chunky and minty." Each bite of this dark bar had slightly chewy (bing cherries) and crunchy (almonds) elements. The black pepper was barely detectable in the bar that I had. The texture of this chocolate bar was less than silky smooth (as expected), but was not unpleasant. The maker claims that more of the nutritional elements are preserved with less processing.
