Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Orange Theme Week.

These Spicely Rosemary and Orange infused, organic chocolates were from Organic Spices Inc. (Fremont, CA).

The disc-shaped pieces had subtle, natural flavors that were tough to pin down at first. I first thought I smelled and tasted a hint of ginger.

The fact that rosemary is not paired often with chocolate made it tougher to recognize. I picked some fresh rosemary from my backyard and it was indeed a close match to the faint herb aroma and flavor in this chocolate. The orange peel was tough to detect as well but contributed to the almost spicy, "bright" flavor note.

Citrus and rosemary are often companions in savory dishes (lemon herb chicken); and it was fun and different to experience them together in chocolate.
