Today was Day #6 of Mexican Chocolate Theme Week.

This two-ingredient dark chocolate bar (cacao beans + cane sugar) from Bar au Chocolat (Manhattan Beach, CA) was made with cacao beans grown in Chiapas, Mexico.

The chocolate had an interesting, complex and distinctive flavor profile, consistent with many of the best hand-crafted bars made from scratch.

The custom-folded packaging and lovely internal copper-colored foil inner wrapper showed careful attention to craft and detail as well.
