After cashing out for a cool $17 million to a conglomerate (Hershey's), one can afford to throw a few crumbs, in the form of nibs, under the table to consuming dogs. Thanks Dagoba... for baking them like schwag brownies to further minimize the high.

brown sugar / sorghum (the effect of cane juice filtered thru the bean) -> vanilla (though none added) -> raisin + pitanga overlay hazelnut substrate -> spice synthesis (cardamom, nutmeg, & tonka) -> Amazon-type chocolate bang (tannic w/ mild bitter) -> walnut & hempseed fudge brownie
Quality 17.6 / 20
Sugar goes a long way to shape-shift bulk beans &, being evaporated cane juice (the current euphemism for the common highly-refined white stuff), infiltrates a smart balance between a semi-sweet bar & fibrous nibs (each enhancing / heightening the other) making the overall simultaneously accesible & hefty.
