xerox the Aroma -> add a scoop of topsoil at the very rear + back radicchio bite -> winds down a golden nut café (superb)
Quality   16.2 / 20
Highly palatable; kids can gulp these down with a smile. As fun as munching on insects. The minor harsh streaks will help them think of eating their Play-Doh® (& who don't like that?) .

Virutally no bitterness. Even the topsoil element loads in minerals of the good Earth variety.

In a rarity, the kind of cocoa that performs better as Nibs than as chocolate because its chemical compounds sit rather plain & simple without the dynamic volatiles responsible for creating a diverse flavor array in a bar. And Mesocacao's bars meet with such expectations (nothing bad; just the opposite; only basic) as well as makes for tolerable high percentage bars up to 90%. Cacáo can be a diametric, antipodal phenomenon like that.

As is, Mesocacao's Matagalpa Nibs equal snacking at its cocoa purest.
