Bar: Sierra Nevada, Colombia (72%)
Maker: Castronovo (Florida, USA)
Price: $11.95/62.4g (Bright River Chocolate, Online US Retailer)
Overall Rating: 7.5/10
Munch Factor: 6/10
Ingredients: Organic Cocoa Beans, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Cocoa Butter
Appearance: 28-rectangle mold, with a lighter brown color.
Smell: Strong cocoa with sweet milk overtones and a bit of woodiness.
The Melt & Snap: Moderate melt & okay snap.
Taste: A bit of bitterness to start, melting into a milk chocolate-like creaminess, finishing with some deeper earthiness and no more of the earlier bitterness.
Complaints & Complements: The texture is very nice— light & fluffy, and I appreciate that you can replace the bar into a package that closes and is recyclable. Complex & sweet enough that you want to eat half the bar now and save the rest for later.
