Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and The Sea Theme Week, featuring chocolates with sea salt and/or other maritime-related items.

Today's 73% Gettin' Nibby Wit It (bar) was from Exquisito Chocolates (Little Havana, Miami, FL).

The dark bar was wrapped in festive maritime packaging--white paper outer wrapper with "cartoon" crabs with claws raised, in a flamenco-style, castanet-wielding dance pose. I've seen crabs doing this--maybe dancing, but usually when defending themselves against an octopus or other potential predators.) 

This bar had a very subtle dark chocolate aroma, but nice textural contrast between the smooth dark chocolate and the high-quality, crunchy, slightly nutty, cocoa nibs.

Like the last few Exquisito bars, this bar also paired with with sea salted items (roasted almonds, tamari, nori), and had a very faint "perfume" finish. 

Ingredients: Cacao beans, unrefined cane sugar, cocoa butter
