Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week.
Today's Almond Sea Salt bar from Tony's Chocolonely (Amsterdam, The Netherlands*) was a large, thick bar—suitable to share with friends or at a family get-together.
This 51% cacao bar had a pleasant, smooth chocolate flavor with an occasional well-balanced sparkle of sea salt and crunchy bites from chunks of almond.
The Tony's Chocolonely bar was made with cocoa from West Africa that was fair trade and "slavery free." The founder's vision involves social change, reducing inequity and "making slavery free chocolate the norm." Worthwhile goal; and hats off to those trying to monitor labor practices at the farm level.
The bar was scored into different sized pieces—unequally divided, just like the real world. Got the message.
*The company also has a location in Portland, OR, USA.
