Welcome to Day #14 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week(s).
Today's Organic Dark Chocolate with Almonds and Sea Salt (bar) was manufactured exclusively for Sprouts Farmers Market (a retail chain based in Phoenix, AZ).
The aroma notes included: subtle fruit (tart red apple, dried persimmon, faint lemon peel), tart green (sorrel, sour grass, oxalis) and bittersweet dark chocolate.
This bar had a fresh, sweet dark chocolate with hints of faint fruit (cherries with orange and a dollop of sour cream) and and the perfect amount of salt (enough to create layered flavor, but not too much). The nutty flavor note (tiny almond bits) showed up in the latter half and this flavor extended into the finish.
Ingredients: Organic cane sugar, organic cocoa mass, organic cocoa butter, organic almonds, sea salt.
Allergen-related information: Contains almonds. "May contain milk, hazelnuts and peanuts."
