***********************************

Some sexpots are so hot they can cure impotence on the spot.

Usually the infatuation wears off & the condition unfortunately relapses. But occasionally these encounters develop into a lifelong romance.

Chocolate, meet the Lemon Drop Chili.

Lemon Drop Chili… because the pepper carries lemon inflection. As such it delivers twin zaps to lighten up the shadowy nature of cacáo. In the process it both competes & plays well with other components. Stacks very nicely with the intrinsic tropical fruit tones of this origin.

Medium-low on the fiery Scoville Index, the citrus-accent serves as an easy tracker alongside in radiating the heat out to excite the chocolate.

Rather than dissipating, its fire persists & reduces the sweetness in this bar, dispensing hot citrus French kisses cooled only by the fat of cocoa butter.

Smooth lemon with tinges of the tropics & gentle singes of smoldering capsaicin.

Rom Still of it's chocolate pairs this committed-combo. And well.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, lemon drop chili pepper
