Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Theme Week.
Patric Chocolate (Columbia, MO) produces a line of bean-to-bar, craft chocolate, single origin and flavored bars -- including limited release bars like today's Spicy Thai Peanut bar that I bought from The Chocolate Garage in Palo Alto, CA.
The base chocolate for this bar -- made from organic cacao beans and organic cane sugar -- had bright, fruit/berry notes that managed to shine through, even with Thai-inspired flavor additions like ginger-infused sugar crystals, roasted peanuts and habanero sea salt, competing for attention. The bar was soy and gluten free.
I envisioned eating this bar with spicy peanut butter sauce over chicken and rice, with pad thai and mango salad on the side.
