Divine Chocolate lives up to its name… or maybe that is just because this is one of the creamiest pieces of chocolate I have tasted in awhile and I love it. Yep, it was Divine.
If you are a new follower, check out the story I wrote about Divine Chocolate a while ago. Basically, they are a chocolate company that is owned and operated by the cacao farmers. There are a lot of unfair business practices that exist in certain areas of the chocolate business and stories like this are awesome to hear (and taste).
Now on to the main course of this story, The Mint Dark Chocolate by Divine.
Snap: Very crisp.
Smell: Compared to the taste, surprisingly bitter with a hint of mint.
Appearance: A dull, medium dark brown. Bonus points here, each square has the logo on it or an African symbol. I recognized some of them from the time that I spent in Africa- so cool!
Taste: This is my favorite part (of course). This bar is one of the creamiest that I have tasted. Don’t be fooled though, embedded in that creaminess are small mint chips that enhance the flavor and add to the texture experience. Yum!
Texture: See above. Smooth with an extra texture of mint chips. I am not even sure if you would call them mint chips? Who cares. It was delicious.
It was about time I do a mint chocolate bar. It has long been a favorite flavor of mine, but Chocolate Dad does not care for the flavor. Something about his mom always having mint chocolate around growing up. That being said, he ate his share of this bar.
Settle the debate for us. Yes to mint chocolate, or no to mint chocolate?
Yay for the weekend! Can you believe it is finally here?
