Welcome to Day #24 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.

Today's 75% Amazonas Dark Chocolate bar came from Taste Artisan Chocolate (Provo, UT).

The chocolate maker's description of this bar read, in part, as follows: "Awajun natives harvest...fruit from deep in the Peruvian Jungles using wooden tools to avoid damage to the fresh beans. Rich flavors of blackberry and fresh cream shine in this bar."

This bar did have a hint of a deep, quiet, dark jungle in the aroma. And the melt and texture were creamy and appealing. The flavor was (similar to tasting notes above) that of a blackberry, with fruit notes that imparted balanced flavor, and not sugar in the middle and finish. This 75% chocolate offered a friendlier, subtly luscious natural flavor and finish than expected, without being too sweet or too bland
