Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Nuts Theme Week.

Today's Intense Dark - Cashew Crescendo bar from Ghirardelli Chocolate (San Leandro, CA) was a "blend of dark chocolate, roasted cashews and coarse crystals of sea salt...a combination of salty and crunchy."

Yes, that is a pretty good summary. I can't top that.

The dark chocolate bar* had a slight, roasted bittersweet, yet fairly uniform flavor.

Take a bite and you'll see several pieces of cashew; however, as is often the case with this tropical nut, the mild cashew flavor was all but eclipsed by the chocolate.

*Ingredients: sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cashews, cocoa butter, milk fat, sea salt, soy lecithin, vanilla
