MORE CHOCOLATE! I’m up to 10 varieties (um, seriously? how have i only eaten ten varieties since starting this project??) which means I’m 1/20th of the way done. Hey man, it’s progress.
NO. 9 // CHOCOLATE: Abdallah Sea Salt Caramel // FROM: Minnetonka General Store // COST: $.50 // DARKNESS: unknown // TEXTURE: chewy with a tiny crunch from the sea salt // TASTE: salty, sweet, rich, delicious! // RATING: 8 // NOTES: The caramel and the sea salt definitely impacts the overall taste of this chocolate, and in the best way possible. Since I love the flavors of salty and sweet combined, this one scored big for me!
NO. 10 // CHOCOLATE: D. Barbero // FROM: Broder’s // COST: gift // DARKNESS: unknown // TEXTURE: insanely smoooooooth, almost velvety // TASTE: Without sounding weird, I would honestly describe the taste as “seductive”! // RATING: 9 // NOTES: To be quite honest, I’m not even sure that this was a dark chocolate. But it was so CRAZY good that I just had to list it. It’s an Italian chocolate, so no surprise that I loved it, right!? Its velvety, melt-in-your-mouth texture combined with a complex flavor (so many notes in one bite!) made for a completely gratifying chocolate experience.
