*Solstice Chocolate Wasatch Blend 70%

Sharing is caring!

Bar: Wasatch Blend 70%
Maker: Solstice Chocolate (Murray, UT, USA)
Price: $9/65g (Cacao Review online store)
Munch Factor: 7/10
Ingredients: Organic Cacao Beans, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter.

Appearance: the light purple of the packaging is alluring, but the pay is also re-sealable & has no inner packaging material, so it’s a double winner there. They only include the most relevant info on the front. The bar inside is a very dark brown, 8-block rectangular mold with a sun on each square.
Aroma: fresh-cut grapes & a plate of day-old brownies, in a kid’s store (but maybe that’s a whiff of the platic the packaging is made out of?).
Melt & Snap: good melt & nice snap.
Flavor: woody, then a slick cocoa that strengthens as it sweetens and a low note of tannin comes in and dries off the palate. It’s a very straightforward, sweet dark chocolate. Nicely done, but the flavor is nothing special; short finish.
Complaints & Complements: this would be another bar to add to the list of great converter darks, bars that can transition milk chocolate lovers to the dark side, because I do think it’s disproportionately sweet. There are no big out-there flavors, subtle fruit on the nose, but overall just plain quality.
Context: sitting in my apartment an hour after waking up & just before breakfast. The weather is lovely outside.
