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 15+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate every day. Happily, even after 5,600+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
Dark Chocolate 62% Pear and Cinnamon bar from Vanini *(Orsenigo (CO), Italy).
This bar had smooth dark flavor suffused with a natural hint of pear steeped in a touch of cinnamon.
The cacao used to make Vanini bars was sourced from "carefully selected plantations in the Bagua District of Amazonas, a region in Peru known for its ancient cacao."
