quik cashew shifts to chocolate, then cranberry in modest succession -> confluence on... as roasted nuts & tart fruit flirt over cocoa -> synergistic combine of flavors
Quality   17.6 / 20
Chris & Tom demonstrated that DR cacáo & cranberries go together naturally.

Adding cashews solidifies the pairing. They balance the tandem even further as their own presence helps to achieve an equilibrium of components that interact exceedingly well thru a contentious Textural minefield.

Prieto adroitly straddles the confection vs. purist chocolate line here in staking a claim to marketing territory.

Excellence confected.

ING: cocoa mass, sugar, cashews, cranberries, vanilla
