Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and The Sea Theme Week.
Today's catch: Single Origin Milk Chocolate Fish with Fleur de Sel from Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate were handcrafted in Eureka, California.
Aroma notes for these 55% milk chocolate fish included: bold dark chocolate and faint salty chocolate and vanilla cookie.
The balanced, bold, very slightly earthy, creamy 55% cacao dark chocolate had a thick rich melt--and tasted refreshingly un-sweet for even a darker milk bar. A judicious amount of vanilla bean and a light sprinkle of sea salt (flecks of fleur de sel on the back of the fish) rounded out the cacao flavor(s).
The maker's description of today's sea-inspired chocolate (below) mentions their proximity to the Pacific Ocean in Northern California.
"Using our Single Origin 55% Milk Chocolate made with organic A2/A2 whole milk by Alexandre Family Farm, we have created a delicious Chocolate Fish confection in honor of our coastal home on the Humboldt Bay. Each fish has been delicately topped with a light sprinkling of Fleur de Sel."
Ingredients: Organic cacao (cocoa solids 55% minimum), Organic cane sugar, Organic A2/A2 whole milk powder, Organic cocoa butter, Fleur de Sel, Organic vanilla bean
Allergen-related information: "Made in a facility that also processes milk, tree nuts, wheat, and peanuts."
*Dick Taylor's operation in Eureka is close to the Pacific Ocean in northern California.
