Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Tanzania Theme Week.
Today's 70% Kilombero (Tanzania) Dark Chocolate (bar) was handcrafted from bean to bar by Solstice Chocolate, Inc. (Salt Lake City, UT).
Subtle aroma notes for this bar included: faint, light fermentation/fermented (fruit, salts, very faint green vegetable) and gentle dark chocolate (true chocolate, very faint brownie).
This dark chocolate had smooth texture and smooth, balanced flavor: dark chocolate with bright, balanced fruit (sweet tart cherry and lemon), and sweet (sugar/honey-floral) notes.
Maker's tasting notes: "Wine, lemon, tart cherries, honeysuckle"
Ingredients: Cacao bean, Organic cane sugar, cocoa butter
Allergen-related information: "Produced in a tree nut, peanut, gluten, dairy and soybean free facility."
