Welcome to Day #2 of 100% Cacao Theme Week.

Today's GranCacao 100% bar was made in Italy by Slitti Cacao Pregiati (Tuscany, Italy) using a "blend of fine cocoas originating from Central America."

This soy and gluten free, ultra-dark bar had an aroma and flavor, with slight bitter, sour and earth notes, characteristic of many 100% cacao bars. However, it was a bit smoother than some other 100%ers.

I thought this relative smoothness (by 100% standards) might be due to a nicer blend of beans and some extra cocoa butter, but it was difficult to tell; the ingredient information listed only "100% cocoa mass").

This 100% cacao bar had a lingering aftertaste (100% cacao that can "stun" our taste buds for a minute or two) and a slight green note at the tail end, after about 30+ seconds.
