Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and The Philippines Theme Week.*
Today's limited edition, No. 3 - Les Sirenes Philippines Chocolat Noir 75% de Cacao (bar) was from Chocolat Bonnat (Voiron Cedex, France).
Cacao was transported to the Philippines from Mexico by Spanish galleon ships as far back as the early 1600s.
Aroma and flavor notes included: bittersweet, baked fudge brownie, subtle caramel, butter, fleeting berry, spice and nut notes.
The texture for this three-ingredient chocolate was notable: a very creamy texture (small particle size) with a melt and mouthfeel consistent with a generous amount of high-quality, pure cocoa butter. (No emulsifiers/lecithins here.)
Ingredients: Cacao, Cacao butter, Sugar
Allergen-related information: (No information listed on wrapper)
*This is the second single origin week this year (2023) featuring cacao grown in the Philippines.
