Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Vietnam Theme Week.
Today's Ginger and Lime 69% Ba Ria bar was from /made by Marou Faiseurs de Chocolate (Chocolate Makers) based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Aromas for this Vietnam bar included faint, warm ginger, dark chocolate and faint citrus.
This 69% dark chocolate had gentle swells of warm spice (ginger), dark chocolate and fresh lime citrus flavor notes. The flavor emphasis was on the smooth dark chocolate; and the other accent flavors were balanced, authentic-tasting and complementary.
The makers found all three flavors (cacao, ginger and lime) in Ba Ria, a southeastern, coastal province in southern Vietnam.
Maker's notes: "...the perfect harmony between the bitterness of cacao, the spiciness of ginger and the sweet acidity of lime."
Ingredients: Cacao nibs (65.5%), cane sugar (29.5%). Soy, gluten, nuts, and dairy free.
Allergen-related information: Manufactured in a facility that also processes coconut.
