Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Cherries Theme Week.
Today's Limited Edition Black Forest Cherry Cake Milk Chocolate (bar) was from Fjak Chocolate AS (Eidfjord, Norway). The woman-owned, small-batch, bean-to-bar maker offers a variety of single origin bars and confections. Many include local, Hardangerfjord-inspired fruit and flavor inclusions.*
This Limited Edition 50% cacao, gluten free, Black Forest Cake-inspired bar (part of Fjak's "The Cake Series") harnessed the power of locally grown sour cherries to spark memories of this German cake.
Aroma notes included: dark milk chocolate, tart lemon-green herb (oxalis), and tart fruit (sour cherry).
Texture: smooth, relatively creamy dark milk chocolate. (The cherries were fully incorporated into the chocolate.)
Flavor notes included: dark milk chocolate; authentic, tart-sweet sour cherry; and very faint, tart lemon-green herb (sour grass, oxalis). The vibrant sour cherry animated this sweet, and flavorful chocolate, creating a slight, pleasing, undulation in the taste.
