Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Blueberry Theme Week.
Today's Blueberry Ginger Origin Dominican Republic 72% Dark (bar) was from Chequessett Chocolate: Cape Cod Craft Chocolate (North Truro, MA).
As their name and tagline suggest, Chequessett Chocolate makes small batch craft chocolate on Cape Cod. The company was co-founded by Katherine Reed, Josiah Mayo and Kristen Reed and has focused on fine flavored cacao from different origins and high-quality flavor inclusions.
Today's bar, with slivers of golden, candied ginger and small dried, wild Maine blueberries was made with direct trade cacao.
The chocolate had a relatively creamy smooth texture and melt and the ginger was a pleasing match to the chocolate and the diminutive, authentic-tasting wild blueberries.
