Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week.
Today's Dark Chocolate with Whole Almonds (bar) was from Alfred Ritter GmbH and Co. KG (Waldenbuch, Germany).
It was a member of the company's "Nut Selection" series of chocolate bars, in the classic Ritter square-shaped bar format, with a pre-scored grid ( of smaller squares), making it easy to break off pieces to eat or share.
This "new" dark chocolate bar was made with Rainforest Alliance Certified cacao (chocolate liquor).
The aroma contained roasted, bold but smooth dark chocolate (fudge brownie) and nutty (roasted almonds) notes.
Each chunky dark chocolate square was a mix of smooth texture/melt and crunchy bites of (whole) almonds.
The flavor was true chocolate (fudge brownie) with a slightly earthy note, and well-managed satisfying boldness.
Ingredients: Sugar, chocolate liquor, almonds, cocoa butter, butterfat (milk), soy lecithin.
