Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Colombia Theme Week.

Today's Cacao Hunters 70% Aruaca Colombia Dark Chocolate (bar) was produced by Cacao de Colombia (Popayan, Cauca, Colombia).

The aroma of this bar upon being opened: a slightly vinegary chocolate. (This dissipated after the package had been opened for a few minutes.) Other than notes that seemed to echo the fermentation process (after first opening this bar), this 70% chocolate had smooth cocoa, nutty, slightly fruity and faint savory (smoked) notes.

The flavor contained true chocolate, faint red fruit jelly/honey, green tea and nut butter notes-- collectively providing an interesting and complex flavor experience.

Maker's tasting notes: "A smooth and fragrant chocolate from the banks of Colombia's golden rivers."

Ingredients: "Cocoa beans, cane sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin."

Allergen-related information: "May contain traces of milk."
