President’s Choice Organics European Dark Chocolate
This is damn good chocolate. It’s a flat-shaped bar, about 5 millimeters thick, divided into squares. I recommended eating one square at a time, letting the chocolate melt on your tongue. It’s rich and buttery, with a touch of mild tartness. Delicious. Its ingredients: Organic unsweetened chocolate, organic raw cane sugar, organic cocoa butter, soy lecithin, organic vanilla extract.
The European in the bar’s title means (according to my limited research) the chocolate has a minimum of 35% cocoa solids. This bar has 70% cocoa solids. What the hell are “Cocoa solids”? The only good definition I could find was:
Based on weight, a little over half of the cacao bean is composed of a group of fats collectively called cocoa butter. The remainder of the bean is made up of several hundred different chemical compounds that carry flavor, color, and nutrients. These are collectively called cocoa solids.
The dark in the title means there’s no milk added to it.
For my American readers, President’s Choice is a Canadian company. I don’t know if their products are available in the States. Who’s the president making the choices? I dunno.
