Welcome to Day #4 of LMNOPQR Theme Week. Today "O" stands for olive.
This Olive Oil Dark Chocolate Bar with Sea Salt was made by Cerreta Candy Company (Glendale, AZ) with/for Queen Creek Olive Mill (Queen Creek, AZ).
I bought this bar at a Queen Creek Olive Mill marketplace location at the Kierland Commons shopping area in Scottsdale, AZ, thanks to the help of a friend who lives nearby. (Thank you Joy!)
Cerreta included Queen Creek's cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) in this dark chocolate bar. The resulting chocolate had a thick and pleasant mouthfeel and melt. The EVOO and cocoa butter give the bar a rich, smooth texture and mellowed any harsh or acidic chocolate notes (of which there were none, from what I could tell).
About mid-way into the first bite, the sweetness kicked in and then the hint of sea salt. It was a fun and interesting bar to try.
