Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate, Honey and Citrus Theme Week, and Day #3 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.

Today's Bean-to-Bar Peruvian 70% Dark Chocolate with Raw Honey (bar) was from Honeymoon Chocolates (Saint Louis, MO).  

The company creates micro batch stone-ground chocolate bars sweetened with raw honey. A portion of the proceeds from this chocolate bar (and others) "are automatically donated to support honeybee research."

The base 70% dark chocolate had a soft melt and texture and an even, dark flavor with faint fermented, cream notes. Raspberry (fruit with seeds) added ruby red color highlights--in the bee-inspired, hexagon-patterned bar--as well as subtle pops of bright, naturally sweet and tart red berry flavor. 

A judicious amount of raw honey contributed a subtle sweetness (vs. the sugar buzz one often feels after eating more processed sugars and syrups). 

Ingredients: Organic cacao, raw honey, cacao butter, raspberry and vanilla bean.
