Today was Day #7 of Chocolate Surprise Theme Week. And this evening I was confronted with a surprise of sorts. I couldn't identify the flavor of handmade chocolate from Chocolate Momotombo (Nicaragua) that was wrapped in a dark blue wrapper. It was a round, individually wrapped, dark chocolate with pieces of maranones (cashew), or mani (peanut), in the center.
There was no ron (rum) or alcohol in it or chili, or other flavor I'd tried before. I also sampled the Momotombo Coco (Coconut) and Naranja (Orange) chocolates as well.
