Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Banana Theme Week.
Today's Banana 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate Nicaragua (bar) was made in-country* by Argencove Fine Artisan Chocolate (Granada, Nicaragua).
This fine dark chocolate bar was infused with banana pieces and spices (cinnamon and cloves) and had balanced aroma and flavor with rich chocolate (and light, natural fruit/banana) and satisfying warm spice notes.
The sweetness of these ingredients was conveyed without the bar being overly sweet—a nice hat trick for makers, if they have the patience and determination to pull this off. And much appreciated by us.
This might be one of the best banana chocolate bars you'll ever taste.
*This phrase is often used to refer to chocolate that was made from bean-to-bar in the same location where the cacao was grown. Most of the time cacao beans are shipped, out of country, for production into chocolate elsewhere.
