Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Red Fruits Theme Week.

Happy July and summer to you all. Remember the aroma, flavor and creamy texture of cherry  chocolate chip ice cream?

Today's 57% cocoa Culinary Tours Cherry Belgian Dark Chocolate bar (made in Belgium and distributed by Topco Associates LLC in Elk Grove, IL) captured this summer frozen treat experience with its cherry ice cream aroma and flavor and a smooth, creamy* dark chocolate melt and mouthfeel.

The combination of dried sour cherries and cherry flavoring (cherry with a hint of almond extract) seemed to be the same combination that perfumed chilled cherry desserts from childhood. This bit of nostalgia and virtual time travel thrown in for free was a welcome thing, as health concerns related to the Corona virus (Covid-19) have made "real" chocolate and culinary travels difficult this 4th of July holiday weekend.

Ingredients: Chocolate liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, butterfat,* dried sour cherry pieces, soy lecithin, natural flavor.
