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

This small box of 15 pieces of Ginger and Coriander chocolates, from Chocolate Momotombo (Managua, Nicaragua), were big on flavor. These bean-shaped beauties were fresh and glossy looking. Every bite was tremendously satisfying, and worth every penny. The chocolate was rich, flavorful and dark, and harmonized well with the bursts of fresh, spicy-floral coriander seed, and ginger.

These were made in Nicaragua (by Carlos Mann and team) for The Chocolate Garage (Palo Alto, CA). The Chocolate Garage is one of the few places where one can find Momotombo chocolates in the U.S. The chief curator and founder of the Garage, Sunita de Tourreil, has a loyal following among her customers for choosing (and crowd-funding) great chocolates that have a happy supply chain.

Warning: Momotombo chocolates can be addictive.
