Welcome to Day #5 of Ghana and Ivory Coast Theme Week.
Today's Ghana 75% individually-wrapped squares were from Chocolat Pralus (Pralus Chocolatier) in France.
Francois Pralus is the son of the original founder, Auguste Pralus, and has expanded the company's bean-to-bar and single origin chocolate offerings over the past few decades. (For example he opened a cocoa bean plantation and processing facility in Madagascar in 2000.)
These squares had an aroma with dark chocolate, spice, fruit, and very faint, fleeting molasses/brown sugar notes, and a creamy melt and mouthfeel with a subsequent very light astringency.
Flavor notes included deep chocolate (fudge, dark brownie, fruit (light cherry) sweetness) and a soft dark chocolate finish.
Ingredients: Cacao beans from Ghana, sugar, pure cocoa butter, GMO free soy(a) lecithin.
