Welcome to Day #13 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week(s).
Today's Roasted Almond Dark Chocolate (package of 8 mini bars) were distributed by Godiva Chocolatier, Inc. (New York, NY).
The nested packaging was well-designed. A chocolate bar shaped package contained 8 individually-wrapped rectangular mini bars that were, in turn, scored into six tiny segments--making these slim, smaller bars easy to share with friends (and/or yourself -- some for now, some for later; oops all gone). Perfect for a luxe theater or after dinner treat.
Each small, slim dark chocolate bars, neatly wrapped in gold foil, had an aroma of rich hot drinking chocolate with vanilla nut wafer sandwich cookie and coconut* notes.
The base dark chocolate had a buttery, uniform dark chocolate texture and true chocolate (fudge brownie) flavor, accented with bits of roasted almond(s).
Ingredients: Unsweetened chocolate, sugar, almonds, cocoa butter, cocoa powder, emulsifier (soy lecithin), salt, butter oil (milk).
Allergen-related information: (Contained almonds, soy and butter oil.) "May contain other tree nuts and wheat."
*The chocolate did not contain coconut or vanilla ingredients. The cocoa powder may have been "dutch" processed (alkalized) leading to a mellower, hot chocolate aroma and flavor, with "implied" vanilla and coconut notes.
