Named after Dan "French Broad" Rattigan's mom, Bubbie.

A bar to make any mother proud of her son (women naturally show pride for their own) even as it makes every southern bubba wince some.

Color: biege, tan, & brown
Surface: studly almonds splayed on back

an Almonds Brothers jam -- nuts (including cocoa) + a thin smear of jelly
Mouthfeel   12.6 / 15
Texture: violent...
Melt: ... crash
Flavor   25.1 / 50
citrus splashes then clashes into caramelized almond with no shot to withstand the sharp acids -> leaves behind a bitter seed extract
Quality   8.4 / 20
Another Peruvian base scooped up by French Broad on their last trek to the Amazon. Morropón sits right down the road from the label's Chulucanas source, & from where Colin Gasko contracted with broman Juan Tirado for the white-seeded Rogue Piura bar. Similarities stop there.

Accidental; this compound topples over from the bright volatiles that sweep everything up in their path. Just doesn't work.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, almonds, cocoa butter
