Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and Golden Sugars Theme Week.

Today's Organic Filled Maple Caramel 57% Cocoa Dark bar was from Lake Champlain Chocolates (Burlington, VT).

Aroma notes for this chocolate included faint caramel and bold, dark chocolate.

The 57% cacao dark chocolate tasted significantly darker than this...more like a 75% Forastero-like (deep, dense) dark with faint green-lemon herb (oxalis) and fleeting (loamy) earth notes. 

Inside the dark chocolate was a soft, flavorful, sweet caramel filling with faint maple sugar notes. The darkness of the cacao/chocolate helped balance the sweetness of the caramel.

Ingredients: Organic dark chocolate (organic sugar, organic chocolate liquor, organic cocoa butter, organic cocoa powder [processed with alkali], and organic vanilla powder, organic heavy cream, organic Vermont maple syrup, organic rice syrup, water, organic invert sugar, sea salt and organic soybean lecithin.

Allergen-related information: Contains milk and soybean. May contain traces of peanuts, tree nuts, and wheat.
