Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.
Today's 35% Cocoa Milk Chocolate bar was part of the Harald Unique (São Paolo, Brasil) line of Brazilian origin chocolate bars. This bar was made with cacao from two Brazilian states: Pará (in the North), and Bahia (Eastern Brazil).
The milk chocolate was sweet and smooth and had a slight caramel flavor. As with many milk chocolates, the percentage of cocoa solids was low enough that it was difficult to tease out cacao flavors.
Cacao seeds, the source of chocolate, are generally called cocoa or cacao beans. In today's description, they were called cocoa "almonds," showing the differences that can occur in local usage or translation. ("Almonds" is a fair description—as these nuts do look similar to whole cacao beans/seeds.)
