Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and (Sea) Salt Theme Week.
Today's 70% Dark Sea Salt bar was crafted in Singapore by Fossa Chocolate.
The texture of this bar was compact and creamy; and the aroma and flavor was very appealing and, well, yummy. You can tell when you're enjoying a bar when you want it all for yourself, even though you almost always share your chocolate with someone else.
Yes, this bar was, as the tasting notes read: "creamy and full-bodied Pak Eddy* 70% dark chocolate, accompanied by the delicate crunch from hand-harvested sea salt."
Seeing the visible salt on the back, led me to think this might be adorned by a bit more salt that I would care for, but it did not overpower the fine flavor of the chocolate which had fruit, nut, true chocolate and great, subtle fermentation notes.
*The source of the cacao for this organic, gluten free and vegan Fossa Chocolate bar was a single estate in Indonesia run by Pak Eddy (a local term loosely translated as Uncle Eddy). Pak Eddy cultivates, ferments and dries the cacao before sending it to Fossa. The results speak to a successful relationship.
