Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Dominican Republic Theme Week.
Today's "Made with love in Belgium*" Organic Nirvana, 72% dark chocolate bar was made with organic and fair trade certified cacao from the Dominican Republic. (Trinitario beans were used for this smooth dark bar.)
Filled with tiny bits of crispy brown rice and coconut, the bar was evenly infused with coconut flavor and a slightly crunchy texture. The coconut flavor was just strong enough that it was difficult to detect more subtle notes in the chocolate; although there was certainly nothing objectionable.
*This gluten-free, Non-GMO bar was made in Belgium for Belgium's Chocolate Source (Wellesley, MA).
