Welcome to Day #10 of Chocolate and Umami Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.
Today's Passion Fruit Sesame Chocolate 68% (bar) was from Crow and Moss (Petoskey, MI). The company creates bean-to-bar, small batch chocolate in Michigan.
The sesame seeds in this bar--and in (white and black) sesame crackers with blue and cream cheese--provided umami flavor.
The passion fruit in the chocolate (and guava (feijoa) and acai fruits (and Brazil nuts)) paired with this unique chocolate kicked off Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.
Aroma notes for this dark bar included: authentic, smooth dark (Forastero variety) cacao (with very faint fermentation note) and subtle tropical fruit acidity.
Creamy, bold 68% dark chocolate with fleeting bursts of tart-sweet tropical fruit (passion fruit, citrus). Golden sesame seeds pressed into the back added some texture.
This tart-sweet dark bar was paired with black sesame crackers, blue and cream cheese, fruit and nuts (guava, acai and Brazil nuts).
Maker's description: "Whisk your tastebuds off on holiday with this lush combination of velvety chocolate, juicy passionfruit and the satisfying crunch of sesame. Tropical sunshine encased in chocolate."
