Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate, Fruit and Botanicals Theme Week.

This dark chocolate round was covered with slivers of sugared orange peel.

The 70% cacao, organic, fair trade chocolate was smooth, slightly bittersweet and complemented the tart-sweet orange peel.

Oranges are originally from Asia, but found a foot-hold in the warmer states of the U.S. Citrus fruit and peel-related flavors blended with chocolate were first sold commercially at least as far back as the 1800s.
