Welcome to the first day (Day #1) of Chocolate and Dominican Republic Theme Week.
Today's Limited Batch Strawberry Basil Dominican Republic bar was crafted by Raaka Chocolate (Brooklyn, NY), a maker of "virgin" chocolate made of un-roasted cacao.
This unique, pleasantly aromatic dark bar was part of the company's "Best of First Nibs" Limited Batch collection of bars and was wrapped and molded with compelling Raaka graphic style.*
The organic, gluten-free and kosher single origin dark chocolate (made from Zorzal Cacao, Reserva Zorzal, Dominican Republic) tasted darker than 67 percent.
The bar had a slightly earthy-roasted coffee flavor with tart strawberry (sweet-sour berry) notes, and a very slight granular texture The basil was infused into the cocoa butter and was difficult to identify, but added a light herbal touch.
*I'm not sure who does the graphic design for Raaka graphic bars, but we're fans.
