Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Finland Theme Week.

Today's Nordi Raspberry and Tangy Licorice Chocolate bar was from Fazer Confectionery Ltd. (Ventaa, Finland).

This bar offered a fun blend of slightly tart and refreshing sweet raspberry and piquant licorice—incorporated into dark chocolate (no cacao percentage listed).

Northern Europeans tend to take their licorice more seriously than we do. Higher-end licorice candy there is, I would argue, more flavorful and better tasting than our corn-syrup laden offerings. So, it's not a surprise to see this flavor fusion in a bar from Finland. I have yet to see this blend in this U.S.
