I bought this Espresso Bits 54% dark chocolate bar from the local Sprouts Farmer Market. Sprouts is a chain based in (Phoenix, AZ). At $1.99 a bar, it was certainly very competitively priced.
The ground coffee in this Espresso Bits bar was not as overpowering or gritty as I expected, which was a plus. The chocolate did taste a bit darker and more complex than 54%. The coffee likely added some rich, roasted flavor to the chocolate. I thought I tasted a slight hint of cinnamon in one bite, although there were no added spices listed in the ingredients. There were also no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, another plus.
Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Espresso Theme Week.
