Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate, Pumpkins and Warm Fall Spices.
Today's Good King "Love" Fragrant and Warm Spices Snacking Cacao was manufactured by Cocoa Future SPC (Seattle, WA).
Aroma notes for this 80% cacao bean-based snack included: freshly baked (warm) spiced molasses cookie; vanilla; and faint cacao.
Texture: crunchy, gently fibrous, whole cacao beans were coated with sugar, cacao butter and warming spices. This coating added a gently sweet, buttery, gently textured, coating that complemented the bean's cocoa essence.
At the center of this snack were 100% cacao beans from Honduras. These beans were caramelized and coated with warm spices (sugar, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, cardamom and cacao butter)--bringing the overall cacao percentage for this snack down to 80%.
Flavor notes alternated between these aromatic and engaging warm spices and authentic crunchy cacao beans.
This "Love" Snacking Cacao offered authentic and warm spice flavors, gentle complexity, and an opportunity to taste whole cacao beans--the true source of all chocolate. And, best of all, this snack was not overly sweet. (Thank you!).
Sadly, this mix is sold out at the moment.
