Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Lemon Theme Week.

Embedded in this 50% cocoa dark chocolate Mint and Lemon bar from Heidi Grand'Or (Produced by S.C. Chocolat S.A.; Product of Romania) were crunchy flecks of candied lemon. The hint of mint was quite mild and refreshing, and harmonized well with the other flavors.

This bar was softened after being exposed to sunlight this morning. The daffodils are in bloom, and the sun is bright enough in my office to melt chocolate -- sure signs that spring is right around the corner. However, despite the heat, the bar retained its shape and flavor rather admirably.
