Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Peanuts Theme Week.
Today's Peanut Butter filled chocolate was from Shekoh Confections (Palo Alto, CA).
The aroma for this confection was relatively complex and sophisticated with faint green, lemon herb (oxalis), spice, nut/seed and cocoa notes.
The smooth dark chocolate, domed shell surrounded a filling with tiny, crunchy sparkles (of sugar I'm assuming) amidst the ground peanuts, creating textural interest. However, this confection was not overly sweet (thank you!). Sometimes tiny bits of sugar and/or salt can create more (layered) flavors than fully incorporated/more processed ingredients. I tend to like and appreciate these choices, as I like tasting individual ingredients even if they're blended together.
Authentic dark chocolate/cacao and peanut flavors lightly lingered into the finish along with a faint flickering earth note at the very end.
Shekoh chocolates sampled thus far have been high-end, skillfully made confections with complex and fresh-tasting, authentic flavors, made without preservatives.
