Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.
Today's Nature To Go Dark Chocolate Brazil Nuts were distributed by Food Castle Inc. (Vernon, CA).
Aroma notes for this chocolate-covered nuts included: tasty, dark chocolate fudge sauce, very faint spirits (whiskey, dark rum), and faint (imagined) vanilla. (These did not contain spirits or vanilla.)
Each piece contained a crunchy, large, nutty (whole Brazil nut) center, with faint, fleeting earth notes, and was surrounded by satisfying, authentic-tasting, quality dark chocolate.
Brazil nuts grow on tall trees in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador--in some of the same regions as cacao. (They're also grown in similar climate zones in Africa and elsewhere.)
Ingredients: Dark chocolate (sugar, unsweetened chocolate, palm kernel oil, cocoa powder (processed with alkali), whole milk powder, butter fat, soy lecithin as an emulsifier, salt, and natural flavor), roasted Brazil nuts (Brazil nuts and salt).
Allergen-related information: "Contains: milk, soy, brazil nuts" "Manufactured in a facility that also processes: milk, peanuts, soy, tree nuts."
