Welcome to the first day (Day #1) of Chocolate and Spices Theme Week.

Today's beautifully packaged Turmeric Ginger bar from Vosges (Chicago, IL) was a unique blend of Asian/Indian flavors: turmeric, ginger, coconut, sweet curry powder and black pepper in 45% dark milk chocolate.

Bold spice blends dominate yet complement and enhance mild foods like chicken, vegetables and/or rice.

However, getting all today's spices to harmonize with a bold acidic flavor like chocolate in this (or other chocolate) bar may have been too much to ask. The complex flavor blend would be fine in a "golden milk" coconut milk-based turmeric and spice beverage without chocolate, but maybe not with cacao.

The result was interesting, but some flavors seemed to be fighting each other a bit.

This Vosges bar was labeled as free of gluten and GMO ingredients.
