Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Dominican Republic Theme Week.

I'm enjoying a few more flavored dark bars from Cacao Prieto (Brooklyn, NY) this week, made with organic, single origin cacao from a family-owned plantation in the Dominican Republic.

Today's Cacao Prieto Mandarin and Bergamot bar hit the flavor trifecta, with well-balanced winning fruity citrus, herby floral, and light spice notes. (Bergamot is one of predominant flavors in Earl Grey tea.) The 72% dark chocolate base was agreeably smooth with a slightly buttery melt and mouth feel.
