Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Vietnam Theme Week.
The best thing about this Ben Tre Single Terroir Dark Chocolate 70% Cacao bar from Belvie Chocolate Maker (Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)) was its delicious, multi-faceted aroma—with true chocolate, intermingled with ripe red fruit, light spice, malt, and green notes. The flavor was good too.
This particular bar lacked the indulgently creamy mouthfeel the other Belvie bars had that we've sampled this week. This one had a faint, granular/astringent quality, but without the off flavors that sometimes accompany this trait in other craft chocolate bars.
