Welcome to Day #10 of Chocolate and Nuts Theme Week.
Today's Roasted Almond Dark Chocolate 60% cacao (bar) was from Sjaak's Organic Chocolates (Petaluma, CA).
Aroma notes included: subtle dark chocolate and nuts, and faint honey cookie.
This relatively thick bar had smooth dark chocolate texture with small flecks of almonds.
Flavor notes included: dark chocolate (brownie), fleeting earth, mild and mellow nutty and faint wood notes.
This bar had bold, yet smooth dense dark flavor (walk through an old-growth forest) mellowed by subtle almond.
And speaking of forests...today's bar (packaging) was adorned with illustrations of a person near in a redwood tree forest, and was being sold at the Presidio (National Park) in San Francisco. A suitable tribute to an iconic Northern California legacy.
Ingredients: Organic 60% chocolate (organic cane sugar; organic, Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa liquor; Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa butter), organic almonds, organic sunflower lecithin.
