Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Haiti Theme Week.

Today's Organic Haiti 70% Dark Chocolate Bar was from Bixby Chocolate (Rockland, ME). Made with PISA Cacao.

Aroma notes included: bold dark chocolate with relatively subtle balanced earth.

Texture: even, almost stone-ground-creamy texture to start. And the creaminess increased, during each bite that was tasted. 

Flavor notes included: deep chocolate-y flavor, with very balanced (loam-like) earth. 

The sweetness level was a bit high (though right in the range of a 70% dark chocolate), and the bitterness was relatively lower than I expected--based on what the (bolder) aroma signaled.

Overall I enjoyed this bar. The chocolate was bold and balanced with satisfying texture, especially for a two-ingredient bar. And it was Organic.

Ingredients: Organic Cacao Beans, Organic Cane Sugar.

Allergen-related information: "Manufactured in a facility that processes: milk, peanuts, soy, and tree nut ingredients." ("Organic, Vegan, Gluten Free")
