Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Fruit Weeks, and Happy Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., where cranberries and cranberry orange sauce are on the menu.
Today's In-Fusion - Cranberry in Cacao Dark Chocolate (bar) was made from bean-to-bar in Austria and distributed by Zotter Chocolates US LLC (Fort Myers, FL).
The aroma of this organic bar included fresh butter, subtle sweet, fruit (tart red berry and very faint sweet lemon and pineapple); and very faint fall floral spice (saffron-infused honey and sweet marigold) notes.
This chocolate had a smooth texture with a velvety melt that accelerated over a period of seconds, and a creamy mouthfeel.
The dark chocolate had quite a smooth with uniformly balanced taste, well integrated dark chocolate and tart red fruit (cranberry) flavors with a very faint buttery sweet lemon and saffron floral honey scone note. The dark chocolate was low in bitterness and had mellow, balanced fruit acidity.
The sweetness level was pleasant and not too overpowering. (Thank you.)
