Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Nibs Theme Week.

This 55% Cacao with Cacao Nibs bar was made in Peru, for Pascha Chocolate Company (Toronto, ON, Canada), reflecting the company's "bean-to-bar close to the source," philosophy, and making it easier to trace each ingredient.

The base chocolate was smooth, but was a little too sweet for me. Adding some crunchy, unsweetened nibs to a sweeter, milk chocolate base has produced good results for other similar bars I've tasted.

Made in a dedicated allergen free facility, this vegan bar contained no genetically modified ingredients and was free of wheat, peanuts, nuts, soy, dairy, egg, and gluten. (Having been around someone suffering from a life-threatening allergic reaction to peanuts yesterday, I want to extend my thanks for Pascha Chocolate and other vendors who go the extra mile to prevent accidental exposures like this in their products.)
