Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Colombia Theme Week.

Today's Kolombia 70% kakao Grand Cru (bar) was made by Chocolate Story (Manufaktura Czekolady) Poland, using cacao beans from Colombia.

The complex and interesting aroma notes for this bar included: molasses, green, maple syrup, chocolate pudding, light wax and floral. Retasting later (after the sealed, foil, inner packaging had been opened for a minute) there was also fruit (cherry and dried stone fruit) notes and a very faint, fleeting incense note. 

This smooth, dark, complex shape-shifter of a bar was full of flavor(s) and had a long, lilting finish. Floral (green floral, vanilla), wood mulch, faint marshmallow, and maple/brown sugar notes were intermingled with steady, dark chocolate dessert notes (cake, pudding, torte). Dried fruit (prune) notes that shifted to green, molasses and then back again (to prune and true chocolate) added flavor depth.

Ingredients: Roasted cocoa beans, sugar. Cocoa solids 70% min. 

Allergen-related information: "May contain milk, nuts."
