Welcome to Day #13 of Chocolate, Fruit and Botanicals Month.

For a dark chocolate bar, this was very sweet—a good example of how dark chocolate can technically be made just as sweet (or moreso) than a milk chocolate bar.

This bar was made with "natural" berry flavors, that tasted a little off, but still conveyed the essence of highly sweetened berries. The attractively packaged dark bar also had a slightly crunchy texture due to the addition of "grain crisps." This bar was not labeled as gluten free, but the grains seemed include brown rice flour, brown sugar and perhaps some corn, and did not seem to include wheat or barley.
