Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Ginger Theme Week.

Today's Organic Dark Chocolate with Turmeric and Ginger 85% Cocoa bar made in Germany and was from Divine Chocolate (London, UK).

This 85 percent cacao dark bar was made with cacao grown in Sao Tome.* It had an authentic fresh ginger aroma, a very slight granular texture (from the spices) and a rich chocolate, ginger and turmeric flavor.

While most 85 percent bars are quite bold and dark, this organic and fair trade chocolate tasted relatively smooth and mild. (A blind taste test might result in a guess of 70 percent cocoa solids. However, the sweet ginger granules** offered a slight sweet uptick.)

*Sao Tome is part of the two-island nation (Sao Tome and Principe) on the Equator, on the central African west coast (Gulf of Guinea). 

**Ingredients: Organic cocoa mass, organic sugar, 9 percent ginger granules (sugar, 30 percent organic ginger), organic cocoa butter, organic turmeric powder, organic ginger extract.
