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 #6 of 100% Cacao Theme Week; and Day #1 of Chocolate and Peru Week.
Today's Organic Raw Chocolate Rawmio 100% Cacao Unsweetened (bar) was from Windy City Organics, LLC (Northbrook, IL).
Aroma notes for this chocolate included light, sweet green herb, very faint marshmallow, molasses and cocoa nib notes.
The flavor: chocolate that tasted like smooth, un-roasted cocoa nibs--pieces of fresh, dried cacao seeds (beans)--with nutty and barely detectable tobacco, light wood, and cherry kirsch notes.
This chocolate truly mirrored the taste of pure cocoa nibs. And that was good. (The company uses organic and fairly traded cacao, from native communities in Peru.)
Rawmio maker's notes: "...Rich in antioxidants with a dark, complex, and fruity flavor, our 100% cacao bar is the perfect way to experience the magic of raw, heirloom cacao without any added sugar..." (Fairly traded, Vegan)
Ingredients: Certified Organic raw cacao nibs, Certified Organic raw cacao butter
Allergen-related information: "Produced in a facility which also processes tree nuts and seeds, but no peanuts, soy, gluten or dairy."
