Welcome to Day #13 of Chocolate, Dominican Republic and Haiti Theme Week. And Happy Halloween to all.
Not as many children go trick-or-treating through neighborhoods for candy and chocolate treats as I experienced during the hey-day of this holiday tradition. But, the artwork on the packaging (with a festive looking skull) for today's bar celebrated not only Haitian traditions but it captured the spirit of Halloween as well.
Today's Haiti Pisa Farmers Trinitario 80% Dunkle Schokolade (Dark Chocolate) (bar) was from Georgia Roman GmbH and Co. KG (Oberkassel, Germany).
This chocolate had brown sugar, honey, nut butter and concentrated fruit (raisin, cherry, plum) and true chocolate notes. It had the rich flavors of an ultra-dark bar, and did have a lingering finish with a touch of very balanced bitterness. But this chocolate was relatively sweet and not that bitter for an 80% cacao bar. This would be a good choice for those who are a bit intimidated by a higher cacao percentage bar.
The chocolate maker's tasting notes read as follows: "Ripe figs, sour cherries and roasted nuts with floral notes"
Ingredients: Cocoa mass, raw cane sugar, cocoa butter
