Bar: 85% Cacao
Maker: Kallari (Quito, Ecuador)
Price: $3.50/70g (Direct From Maker)
Overall Rating: 6.5/10
Munch Factor: 7/10
Ingredients: Cacao Liquor, Cane Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Natural Vanilla
Appearance: 18-block plain mold with a cacao leaf printed on each rectangle; very dark black-brown color.
Smell: Very sweet cocoa and a slight plastic overtone, likely from the inner packaging. Woody vanilla undertones highlight the strong cocoa.
The Melt & Snap: delightful melt & good snap.
Taste: Dark fudge; sweet glorious melty chocolate, through and through. Very short smooth finish.
Complaints & Complements: The shade of purple used for the 3D-print stylized cacao leaf gracing the front packaging is beautiful. Definitely a pleasing bar, but it lacks complexity although it is as very palatable 85% bar and would surely be a crowd-pleaser.
