Welcome to Day #4 of Crunchy Chocolate Theme Week.
Today's Organic Dark Mint Bar was from Loving Earth* and "Made in Australia from Imported Ingredients." The organic cacao was sourced from Peru.
This 72% dark, gluten, dairy and cane sugar free bar had a soft crunch (nibs) and slightly soft, cocoa butter melt and mouthfeel. (Today's chocolate-powered, winter walk took place on a sunny, cold day, and cold can influence texture.)
The chocolate (made with raw cacao butter and nibs) like most raw chocolates was smooth in flavor, without fully highly developed acidity or roasted flavors.
Ingredients: organic cacao (72%), organic virgin cacao butter, organic cacao powder, organic raw cacao nibs, organic raw agave nectar, organic peppermint essential oil (less than 1%)
*It appears that Loving Earth is based in Upper St. Clair, PA; and the chocolate is made in Melbourne, Australia.
