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

Today's Copper Kettle Co. Dark Chocolate Truffles with Sea Salt were manufactured by CandyCo (Lindon, UT).

Aroma notes for these individually-wrapped chocolates included: subtle dark chocolate and very faint (barely detectable) tart sweet green (wood sorrel, oxalis); and almost undetectable, very diffuse fruit (dried fruit and very faint coconut.

A smooth dark chocolate coating surrounded an even smoother, dark chocolate ganache ("melt-away centers").

Flavor notes included: satisfying chocolate-y, smooth (tasting and textured) dark chocolate with small upticks of sea salt and very faint warm, dark chocolate fudge with vanilla.

What I enjoyed: this dark chocolate confection 1.) wasn't too sweet; 2.) had a smooth, textural dark chocolate gradient (from outer shell to generous center); and 3.) had a relatively short list of ingredients.*

Ingredients: "Dark Chocolate (Chocolate Liquor*, Sugar, Cocoa Butter*, Soy Lecithin, Vanilla Flavor), Coconut Oil, Sea Salt. (*Rainforest Alliance Certified. Find out more at"

Allergen-related information: Contains: "Coconut, Soy. May Contain Traces of Milk, Eggs, Almonds, Cashews, Hazelnuts, Macadamia Nuts, Pecans, Pistachios, Wheat."

*Some chocolatiers have never put artificial preservatives, colorings, emulsifiers, gums or "Natural Flavors" in their chocolates. Happily, more chocolatiers now offer bars and confections with a shorter, simpler or less processed list of ingredients, as more customers are avoiding extra ingredients in their food, and chocolates.
