Blanxart Brasil 76%

Having exhausted nearly all of Blanxart's dark chocolate origins, it is probably time to call it quits now

The cocoa in this 76% Brasil bar had grown in the Amazon rainforest. The plantation from where the cocoa had grown is located on the Transamazonian road between Belém and Itaituba. Belém in Portugal has the best pastel de natas. Anyway, back to the chocolate - that is not affiliated with Portugal - the ingredients were cacao, sugar, cocoa butter and vanilla, all organic!
The aroma was sweet, and sherbet, and suddenly very fruity! The taste was a chocolate bar with a squeeze of lime. There was a subtle coffee cream which would round the finishing flavour. The melting texture was smooth

My first thoughts upon this chocolate were that it wasn't great. It did have too much added cocoa butter, and it had that undesired tainted feel to it, but really it wasn't that bad. I enjoyed it particularly in a baguette from Gail's Bakery, or dipped in a non-speciality coffee
