Today was Day #5 of Chocolate, Caramel and Toffee Theme Week. And, today we land back in toffee-land, with this Milk Chocolate with Toffee and Espresso bar from Divine Chocolate.

I liked the combination of sweet, but not too sweet, milk chocolate (38% cacao) tempered by crunchy bits of toffee and ground, espresso roast coffee beans (coffee nibs) in this well-balanced bar.

Divine Chocolate's cacao origin story is somewhat unique. Cacao beans for its line of bars comes from the Kuapa Kokoo Farmers co-operative in Ghana. (Co-op members voted to create their own farmer-owned Fairtrade chocolate company, and this became "the heart of Divine.")

The bar's brightly colored wrapper (packaging) was adorned with Adrinkra symbols—"traditional West African motifs, often used on hand-made crafts." Each symbol has its own meaning.

This bar was made in Germany and distributed by Divine Chocolate Inc. (Washington, D.C.).

Ingredients: Sugar, cocoa butter, skimmed milk powder, cocoa mass, toffee 10% (sugar, glucose syrup, butterfat (milk), salt), butterfat (milk), coffee nibs 3%, sunflower lecithin (emulsifier), vanilla.
