Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Ginger Theme Week.
Today's Candied Ginger (bar) was from The Xocolate Bar (Berkeley, CA).
Aroma and flavor notes included: warm, spicy ginger and dark chocolate.
Thick, smooth and rich 70% cacao dark chocolate surrounded chewy bits of ginger.
Dark chocolate and ginger--both bold flavors--were balanced (not boring) in this bar. And both dark chocolate and ginger were allowed to shine. There was enough harmonious flux (nuances, complexity) to keep the taste interesting and appealing.
The Xocolate Bar tasting notes: "...spicy and sweet with a ginger zing"
Ingredients: Organic, fair trade (70%) dark chocolate (organic cacao, organic sugar, sunflower lecithin), ginger, sugar
