Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week, featuring a variety of chocolate and fruit items.
Today's "Apeeling Chocolate" Chocolate Covered Plantain Clusters were from Exquisito Chocolates (Little Havana, Miami, FL).
The package of generously-sized, bark-like pieces had an aroma of rich milk chocolate and faint plantain/banana chips. The smooth and flavorful dark milk chocolate paired well with the embedded crunchy pieces of authentic plantain (chips).
Maker's description: "...crispy milk chocolate-covered plantain chips which bring the perfect balance of Miami sweet and salty."
Ingredients: "Cacao, cocoa butter, unrefined cane sugar, milk, plantain. Contains cow's milk. Processed in a facility that also processes milk, peanuts, tree nuts and wheat."
