Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and R,S,T,U Theme Week, featuring chocolate items with origins or flavor inclusions that start with the letters R, S, T and/or U, such as salt and toffee.
Today's Organic Salted Toffee 55% Dark Chocolate (bar) was from Theo Chocolate (Seattle, WA). The company offers a wide variety of bars and confections made with organic and fair trade chocolate.
This bar had an earthy dark chocolate and salted toffee aroma and flavor. Smooth dark chocolate enveloped crunchy toffee bits with tiny sea salt sparkles. The earthiness helped keep the sweetness in check and paired well with the salt.
The deep, dark flavored cacao used to make this 55% bar will likely please dark chocolate lovers as the resulting chocolate tasted more like a 70% cacao bar.
The finish: a mellowing deep, dark chocolate finish with faint hints of butter toffee.
