Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Fig Theme Week.

Raw chocolate bars lack some of the stronger roasted and acidic flavor notes that some dark chocolates have, but they often make up for that in terms of smoothness. Flavor additions (added ingredients) can also boost the flavor profile as in today's bar (bark).

This vegan rawmio Hazelnut and Fig Raw Chocolate Bark from Windy City Organics, LLC (Northbrook, IL) had subtle dark flavor. And organic, sprouted hazelnut pieces and a peppering of crunchy cacao nibs added contrast and texture to the stoneground chocolate. The few sliced bits of organic black mission fig I detected added a hint of acidic, dried fruit, and a little extra pizazz.
