Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate, Bees and Trees Theme Week.
Today's 66% Cacao with Maple Sugar (bar) was from Ranger Chocolate (Portland, OR)--a company that has a tree graphic as part of their logo.
The company has paired sweet maple sugar crystals (made from maple tree sap) with a "bold, fruit forward Trinitario cacao."
Maker's tasting notes read: "strawberry and maple syrup."
Most chocolate bars and confections in the U.S. are flavored with cane sugar and perhaps beet sugar.
