Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and Honduras Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Ginger Theme Week.
Today's 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate w/ Caramelized Ginger, Honduras (bar) was hand-crafted and distributed by Palato S. de R.L. (Tegucigalpa M.DC., Honduras).
Aroma notes for this bar included: relatively bold, dark chocolate with subtle complexity, with lively spice (ginger) and occasional earth notes.
Flavor notes included: spikes of spicy, authentic, sugared ginger and dark chocolate. There were fleeting bitter and slightly soapy ginger notes (I'm assuming both from the slightly chewy ginger root flecks).
This was a satisfying dark chocolate spice bar. One small piece provided a good wake-up chocolate breakfast.
Ingredients: Cacao nibs, sugar and caramelized ginger (ginger and sugar)
