Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Spices Theme Week.

Today's Cinnamon Orange Infused with Clove 70% bar was from Elements Truffles (Kearny, NJ).

This square bar had a warm cinnamon and spice aroma, and a creamy, rapid melt.

The blend of flavors included soft, dark chocolate, cinnamon, clove, spice and chewy dried orange pieces—with a light, lingering cinnamon and natural orange finish.

I've found most bars from Elements Truffles to be quite soothing. Perhaps because the company sweetens their bars with honey instead of sugar. Although if you look at the founder origin story, other clues to this conveyed state of mind are revealed:

"Elements Truffles was born at the intersection of two things that make us happy - chocolates and meditation. We are an Ayurveda inspired line of clean chocolates that taste good and does good - for the body, mind, and community." (This is coming from an ex-Wall Street trader who chose to pursue her own chocolate business.)
