Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Africa Theme Weeks. This week we're exploring Tanzania.

Today's Tanzania Kokoa Kamili 70% Dark Chocolate bar was carefully crafted by Arete Fine Chocolate (Milpitas, CA).

This was a very pleasing two-ingredient bar that tasted like plum and raisins—but not just any raisins. The wonderful kind that are embedded in the best Boston brown bread* one can make. It also tasted like great chocolate, i.e. had classic chocolate flavor with balanced rich flavor notes.

*Boston brown bread is a dark-colored, cake-like "bread" with molasses, corn meal and raisins that is steamed in a can. It was a childhood favorite. While there is no cocoa in the original recipe, it has a similar rich flavor and color.
