Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Tanzania Theme Week.
Today's Tanzania 72% Dark Chocolate (bar) was from Moka Origins (Honesdale, PA).
If you want to experience a warm, flavorful, sweet dark chocolate embrace, try this bar. It had an inviting aroma with warm spice (cinnamon, cloves), and freshly baked dark chocolate cake notes. The melt and texture were smooth.
The flavor had a warm and bright sweet taste, with fruity (red apple, peach, nectarine, red berry) and true chocolate (devil's food cake + rich, hot drinking chocolate) flavor and finish.
This Tanzania cacao-based chocolate was low in bitterness; and the choice to bump up the cacao percentage (from 70% to 72%) was a good one. This bar was naturally bright and fruity; and a lower percentage of cocoa solids might have resulted in chocolate that was too sweet.
Ingredients: Cocoa beans, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter
