Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate Surprise Theme Week. 

Today's Dark Batata 58% Dark Mylk Chocolate (bar) from Mission Chocolate (Sao Paolo, Brazil) was created by chocolate maker Arcelia Gallardo.

The word batata (in several South American countries, including Brazil) means sweet potato. Aroma notes for this dark "mylk" chocolate batata bar included: chocolate (rich, creamy cocoa; very faint fermented cacao; and slightly bitter/earthy-sweet vegetable (sweet potato).

This surprisingly unique alternative "mylk" chocolate had a smooth texture with a creamy, uniform melt. (The batata, a native of Latin America, serves as a substitute for dairy milk.)

Balanced flavor notes included dark chocolate (relatively intense but smooth cocoa) flavored with slightly earthy-sweet vegetable (cooked sweet potato, with skin), and very faint warm spice.

Ingredients: "Organic cacao, organic sugar, cocoa butter, sweet potato."

Allergen-related information: "May contain wheat, oats, milk, almonds, hazelnuts, cashew nut, Brazil nut, nuts, macadamia, pecan, pistaches, pinoli, and natural latex. May contain traces of gluten."
