Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Dates Theme Week.

Today's 75% Cacao Almond Sea Salt (bar) was distributed by The Conscious Bar LLC (Miami, FL).

Aroma notes included: dark chocolate (very slightly fruity, dark ganache) and nuts (almonds).

Texture: Smooth chocolate interspersed with a generous, uniform constellation of crunchy almond bits. (Note: the dates were fully incorporated into the chocolate.)

Flavor notes included: chocolate (smooth, dark; chocolate-y), with roasted almond texture and flavor, faint fruit (date), and a judicious pinch of sea salt. 

The balance of flavors and the sweetness levels in this week's bars (by The Conscious Bar) have been just right (for me at least) this week. 

The natural sweetness from the dates is enough to be very pleasant. The chocolate is smooth, but still with some complexity in terms of flavor(s)--almonds in today's case. And, their 75% dark chocolate choice is not so bold that it will scare milk chocolate fans.

I also appreciated the use of a short list of quality, organic ingredients.

Ingredients: Organic Cacao Beans, Organic Almonds, Organic Cacao Butter, Organic Dates, Sea Salt.
