Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Orange Theme Week.

A bite of this 49% cocoa Milk Chocolate bar with Orange Peel bar evoked a pleasant memory of Christmas chocolate + orange spice flavors from decades past.

This, gluten-free, bean-to-bar Vanini* bar was made in Italy by ICAM SpA (Orsenigo, Italy). The company buys "Bagua cocoa direct from the 460 Peruvian families that make up the Aprocam co-operative." Bagua is a region in Peru where cacao has been "grown as far back as 3000 AD (sic) by the Mayo Chincipe people...before the Olmec and Maya."
