Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Flowers Theme Week, and Day #2 of Chocolate and India-inspired Theme Week.

Today we're getting closer to India-inspired flavors with this Cardamom and Rose Petals milk chocolate bar from Moonstruck Chocolate Co. (Portland, OR). Thank you to the wonderful woman in the company's small downtown shop who helped me pick out this bar.

A base of cardamom infused milk chocolate was adorned with festive bits of crystallized rose petals, candied orange (and) pistachio pieces.

Pretty and exotic, this India-inspired bar had a light candied fruit and floral aroma that mingled with sweet milk chocolate. The chocolate was a bit too sweet for me, but the overall flavor blend and appearance was beautiful. The cardamom spice was very subtle and added brightness.

Smooth and creamy blended with chewy crunch from the generous helping of candied pink petal and orange, and green pistachio nut bits.
