Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Colombia Theme Week.
Today's Colombian 70% Dark Chocolate (bar) was from Sugar Love Chocolates (Reno, NV). I was able to visit this cozy chocolate shop that carried an assortment of truffles/filled chocolates and bars. It was located in the basement level of a smartly renovated U.S. Post Office building (from the 1930s) along with a handful of other artisan shops in downtown Reno.
There was something very light and pleasant about this 70% dark chocolate, a hint of chocolate cream pie or chocolate cake. Even the texture had a whipped and fluffy dark chocolate mousse taste and texture. (That texture might have been in part due to the soy lecithin.)
Ingredients: cocoa bean (cocoa liquor and cocoa butter), cane sugar, soy lecithin
