Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Nicaragua Theme Week.
Today's 77% Cacao Nicalizo Nicaragua Premium Dark Chocolate bar was from Goodnow Farms Chocolate (Sudbury, MA).
This bar had a creamy melt and smooth texture (similar to the company's two other Nicaragua single origin (El Carmen) bars we sampled earlier this week).
The aroma and flavor had cream and fruit notes (similar to chocolate made with Criollo cacao). Tart, but balanced fruit flavor bloomed as the taste experience progressed. This bar had some of the same desirable qualities of the 77% El Carmen Nicaragua bar from the same makers; however, it was more fruit forward and complex.
We look forward to trying more Goodnow Farms Chocolate origin bars in the future.
