Welcome to Day #14 of Chocolate, Dominican Republic and Haiti Theme Weeks.
Today's Haiti Dark Chocolate 72% (bar) was from Cru Chocolate (Roseville, CA).
This bar had a delightfully rich chocolate aroma and flavor with dried fruits (dates, prunes, pineapple), fresh sugar cane and faint floral notes.
The Republic of Haiti occupies the western half of the West Indies island of Hispaniola. The Dominican Republic occupies the the eastern half. I've been featuring chocolates from these neighboring nations for the past few weeks. The quality of single origin bars from both of these locations has improved since Chocolate Banquet started in 2006.
Ingredients: Organic cacao beans, organic unrefined cane sugar
