Today was Day #1 of Chocolate and Ecuador Theme Week.

SOMA Chocolatemaker (Toronto, Canada) offers a variety of high-quality, flavored truffles (Douglas Fir, Magnolia Peach, Jasmine, and others).

The team at SOMA also produces a series of single origin truffles, including today's Ecuador square(s) -- made with "chocolate from the farm of Camino Verde," in Balao (a region with a long cacao-growing history), in Guayas province, in southern Ecuador.

Tasting notes for this truffle were: "baked brownies, toast and honey." This description sounded good to me. The two pieces that I ate this evening were full of creamy flavor, and did have almost a honey-like sweetness.

An added plus -- SOMA also makes their chocolates without extra preservatives or additives that might mask flavor notes specific to a given region in Ecuador.
