Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Dates Theme Week.

Today's 75% Cacao Toasted Coconut Flakes (bar) was distributed by The Conscious Bar LLC (Miami, FL).

Aroma notes included: dark chocolate, light floral (vanilla, coconut), date, and very faint sweet, green nut.

Texture: The dark chocolate base was relatively creamy, and interspersed with authentic, chewy flecks of coconut. The coconut flakes were just about the right size--thin enough to have an almost delicate, authentic melty-chew (i.e. they weren't too dry or tough, or slathered in sugar/syrup -- thank you!).

Flavor notes included: smooth but gently flavorful 75% dark chocolate melded effectively with authentic coconut flakes. The background date sweetness (there was no added sugar other than dates) tasted authentic and did not overwhelm: the dates seemed to be well incorporated into the chocolate, with no trace of date texture/graininess. There was a pleasant faint, sweet nutty note throughout (likely from the coconut) that I liked. 

I enjoyed this nicely balanced and well-executed, gluten-free chocolate, made with a short list of Organic ingredients.

Ingredients: Organic Cacao Beans, Organic Coconut Flakes, Organic Dates, Organic Cacao Butter
