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 15+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate every day. Happily, even after 5,600+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #7 of 100% Cacao Theme Week--featuring 100% (unsweetened) cacao chocolate and 100% cocoa nibs together, in one bar--and Day #2 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
Today's Organic 100% Cacao Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs (bar) was a product of Peru and was distributed by Pascha Chocolate Company (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).
Aroma notes for this bar included: dark chocolate, green, maple, faint molasses, diffuse warm (almost floral) spice and faint roasted wood and nut.
Flavor notes included, intense, rich dark chocolate that was well integrated with roasted, nutty cocoa bean/nib flavors.
The blend (and roast) profiles of a smoother chocolate with more intact pieces of cocoa bean (seed) pieces (nibs) created a hearty, softly crunchy texture and added depth to the overall bold, fresh cacao taste.
This concentrated, balanced blend of authentic cacao flavors will appeal to those who you enjoy more intense, ultra-dark chocolates. I would add this bold bar to a 100% Cacao tasting flight to let people experience its pure cocoa bean and nutty nib flavors.
