In 2006, my daughter bet I couldn't eat a different chocolate each day for a year. I enjoyed that year so much that, after 16+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate every day. Happily, even after 5,860+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Ghana Theme Week.
Today's Salted Dark Chocolate 70% Cocoa (bar) was made in Switzerland, and distributed by Dr. Bronner's (Vista, CA). Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Chocolate line of 70% dark chocolate bars are made using organic, fair trade cocoa grown in Ghana and Ivory Coast.
Aroma notes for today's Salted Dark Chocolate included: true chocolate (brownie), faint green tart herb (oxalis, sorrel), spice, floral, fruit (cherry) and vanilla. This thick, hearty dark chocolate bar had smooth texture.
The dark chocolate flavor notes mirrored the aroma notes (above), with a deeper immersion into true, rich chocolate--interspersed with tiny sparkles of sea salt.
This well-balanced, rich bar was sweetened with just the right amount of (coconut) sugar, for my taste; that is, it wasn't too sweet (thank you). Today's bar was full of well-executed, balanced, intense chocolate flavor--enough to pass for a darker, 75% cacao (vs. 70%) dark chocolate.
