Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Sea Salt Theme Week.
Today's 60% Dark Chocolate with Green Banana Chips + Pink Salt (bar) was from Theo and Philo Chocolate Factory, Inc. (Manila, Philippines).
Aroma notes for this bar included: soft fruit (tropical, banana), subtle chocolate, and mild, sweet floral (vanilla, coconut).
Layered bits of green banana chips in lush 60% dark chocolate created a satisfying, softly crunchy (starchy, crispy) texture. The sweet-salt balance was in the delicious and addictive range.
This chocolate bar made with cacao from the Philippines reminded me of a very enjoyable, rich chocolate cookie (lacy, buttery dark chocolate and almond florentines) or a tropical island chocolate profiterole. Delicate but also rich, crunchy and delicious.
Understated aroma and flavor notes were elegantly complex and authentic and not boring.
Ingredients: Cacao beans, sugar, banana, cocoa butter, coconut oil, Himalayan salt.
Allergen-related information: (Cotained coconut.) Processed in a facility that also processes peanuts and other tree nuts.
