Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Flowers Theme Week.

Today's Apricot Honey (bar) with Organic Dark Chocolate, Dried Apricots, Marigold Petals, Honey Candy and Bee Pollen (bar) was made by Ethereal Chocolate (Woodstock, IL).

Aroma notes for this chocolate included: dark chocolate, dried stone fruit (apricot, nectarine) and natural sweeteners (brown sugar, honey).

The back of the dark chocolate bar was an attractive, warm-hued, tiny gold mine of flavor additions, including: dried apricot pieces, shredded golden marigold petals, cheery yellow speckles of bee pollen, and honey candy crystals.  

The base dark chocolate was flavorful, but had a slight granular dryness (fruit astringency) (likely from the cacao). Otherwise it was well balanced and well-executed.

Together, the blend of dark chocolate and the added floral and other flavors mentioned above resulted in an interesting, and thoughtfully complex, bar--made with a short list of high-quality, organic ingredients.

This dark chocolate was also not overly sweet (thank you!).
