Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Nicaragua Theme Week.
Today's 77% Cacao El Carmen Nicaragua Premium Dark Chocolate bar was from Goodnow Farms Chocolate (Sudbury, MA).
This bar had a dark chocolate aroma with a very faint and fleeting savory earth note.
It had wonderful firm, creamy melt and creamy smooth delectable texture.
The flavor was uniform and smooth dark chocolate with a bit of relatively low, balanced fruit acidity, a very faint nutty plant (tiger nut) note and a mild finish.
The maker's description read in part..."Working closely with local partners, we've developed a custom drying technique that perfectly highlights the unique blackberry, raisin and cocoa flavors of this cacao."
Ingredients: Cocoa beans, Organic sugar, cocoa butter.
