Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week.
Today's Filled Passion Fruit 80% Cocoa bar from Lake Champlain Chocolates (Burlington, VT) was an intriguing combination of deep dark chocolate surrounding an creamy inner filling of tropical, tart, passion fruit.
The company has added a barely there touch of lime that also helps cut the sugar level (thank you).
Normally, a smooth but bold 80% cocoa chocolate might overwhelm more delicate fruit flavors; but the two extremes co-existed rather beautifully and seductively in this bar.
