Every one of my tastings are blind. When I purchase the chocolate, I know the name and type but make no judgment on the bar. I pay no attention to what’s on the package. I want the chocolate to speak to me. I want it to tell me a story. I want to feel the heart and soul of the chocolate maker.
My experience with these bars could be 100% different than what the chocolate maker had in mind, but it doesn’t make it wrong. Everyone who tastes a chocolate bar will have a unique opportunity to taste the magic in each bar.
I found this bar to be incredibly interesting. The longer I let it melt on my tongue, the more I liked it. I felt like we were developing a relationship. The flavors drew me in, and I wanted to know more.
When tasting chocolate, I have only a pen and paper. I focus on the flavor and write down the story the chocolate shares with me.
