In 2006, my daughter bet I couldn't eat a different chocolate each day for a year. I enjoyed that year so much that, after 17+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate every day. Happily, even after 6,200+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #13 of Chocolate, Enchanted Islands and Pirates Theme Week.
This Haiti Paradis 47% cacao bar was the last in the series of four bars from Los Chocolateries Askanya (Ouanaminthe, Nord-Est, Haiti). The bar was made in Haiti, using Haitian-grown cacao. The previous three bars from this maker featured this week were dark chocolate bars.
Today's Paradis 47% cacao bar was a delightful milk chocolate bar made with Haitian Cacao, Sugar, Milk and Cocoa Butter. It was smooth, almost creamy, and sweet with an appealing light fruitiness to it.
This was one of those milk chocolate bars that even a dark chocolate fan could appreciate.
