Bar: 70% with Salt
Maker: Undone Chocolate (Washington D.C., USA)
Price: $6.99/56g (Mom’s Organic Market)
Overall Rating: 8/10
Munch Factor: 5.5/10
Ingredients: Organic Cacao, Organic Cane Sugar, Sea Salt
Appearance: Plain elongated 12-block pre-broken mold; very dark brown color with iridescent salt crystals on the back.
Smell: Sweet cocoa with rough edges (I blame the salt’s influence)
The Melt & Snap: okay melt & nice snap.
Taste: Very smooth slightly earthy cocoa is cut by salt and then incoming notes of fruitiness and the lightest tannin near the end; moderate nutty finish.
Complaints & Complements:Underwhelming typical packaging, though the bar itself manages to appear elegant. The evolution of flavors is not to be denied, though, and is lovely, showcasing the abilities of what I believe to be a fine chocolate maker… and local, too!
