Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and West Africa Theme Week.
Today's Organic Dark Chocolate 70% (bar) was manufactured in Belgium by Libeert s.a. (Comines, Belgium).
This chocolate had a relatively complex dark aroma with balanced olive and slight earth/loam notes. The melt was smooth and the taste progressed into more of a true chocolate, light brownie flavor and finish.
While today's dark chocolate bar did not specify an origin, statistically, I'm betting it was made with an organic cacao blend that included West African cacao. This bar was Fairtrade and gluten free.
("Cocoa and cane sugar: traded in compliance with Fairtrade standards.")
Ingredients: Organic chocolate liquor, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter; Cocoa solids 71% minimum)
