Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Nibs Theme Week.

Today's bar was made without conventional sweetener (cane sugar). Instead, this Dark Cocoa Nib - No Sugar Added bar from Cavalier NV (made in Belgium), was sweetened with a blend of ingredients.*

The long ingredients list was a little off-putting, but there were no off notes in this dark chocolate bar.

The melt and texture was a bit interesting: slightly smooth and buttery, but slightly granular as well. However, much of this contrast is explained by the the pairing of chocolate and crushed bits of cocoa nibs.

*Ingredients: Unsweetened Chocolate, Dextrin, Erythritol, Cocoa Butter, Inulin, Oligofructose, Roasted Cocoa Beans, Soy Lecithin as an emulsifier, Natural (vanilla) Flavor, and Steviol Glycosides as a sweetener."
