In 2006, my daughter bet I couldn't eat a different chocolate each day for a year. I enjoyed that year so much that, after 16+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate every day. Happily, even after 5,860+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #5 of 100% Cacao Theme Week.
Today's 99% Cacao Dark Chocolate (bar) was made in France, available via Lindt and Sprungli USA Inc. (Stratham, NH).
This almost 100% bar had a subtle aroma and smooth dark chocolate aroma and flavor with consistent chocolate cake/cocoa (and very faint roasted and mocha) notes. The relatively thin bar had a relatively thick buttery melt and texture.
Another no (or almost no) sugar added, ultra-dark bar now, that is fairly widely available in stores in the U.S. Something to celebrate for pure cacao fans.
Ingredients: Cocoa paste, fat-reduced cocoa, cocoa butter, demerara sugar.
