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 #18 of Chocolate and Fruit(s) Week, and Day #2 of Chocolate and Tea Theme Week, that includes chocolate + tea pairings.
Today's Luscious Blueberries + Dark Chocolate 72% Cocoa (bar) was from Endangered Species Chocolate, LLC (Indianapolis, IN).
Aroma notes for this bar included dark chocolate; authentic, smoky floral vanilla bean; and dark berry jam cake.
The 72% cocoa dark chocolate had a thick, creamy texture with a satisfying, relatively slow, even melt. The chocolate flavor was deep, dense and mellow (almost nutty).
The sweetness level was balanced by dark, rich chocolate and (more subtle) dark berry/blueberry flavors.
I paired this bar with a black tea flavored with fresh, strained blueberry juice and a lemon slice.
Ingredients: Bittersweet chocolate (chocolate liquor, cane sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla), cane sugar, dried blueberries, sunflower oil.
