Welcome to Day #5 of International Chocolate and Nuts Theme Week. As so often is the case, interesting (international) chocolates are often found at large airports. Today's Swiss dark chocolate was found at a chocolate shop in the San Francisco's International Airport (SFO).
Today's Dark Chocolate slab with Nuts was made by Canonica SA (Vernier, Geneva, Switzerland). The company was founded in 1948 by Andre Canonica.
Aroma notes for this thick slab included: pleasing roasted nuts and smooth but flavorful dark chocolate with very faint, fleeting, tart (lemon) herb (oxalis, wood sorrel, sour grass).
The texture was hearty and pleasing with a generous helping of crunchy hazelnuts and pistachios.
The dark chocolate was high-quality and well balanced with the nut flavors, allowing the nuances of both to be identified and enjoyed (separately and, quite harmoniously, together).
Ingredients: (No ingredients label. Sold by the pound, individually wrapped, rectangular bar-shaped pieces.)
Allergen-related information: Contains nuts (hazelnuts, pistachios and possibly other nuts).
