Surprise from the left side. In the distant shadow of the American chocolate epicenter – SF, CA – an everyday unsung working hero.
Presentation   3.7 / 5
large lumpen pieces
Aromas   3.6 / 5
neutral
Textures/Melt   8 / 10
Shells: unusually solid throughout
Centers: very little ganache / cream fill
Flavor   41.9 / 50
respectfully upfront
Quality   23.8 / 30
Mass-market premium
Selections
Couverture: Callebaut
Raspberry – well-integrated
Coconut – bit evasive
Cappuccino – lightly flavored, medium-bodied cream; good
Champagne – bubble creamery
Truffle Square – cocoa-dust pack

BARS - while these would have trouble competing in a Super Chocolate Bowl, they hold firm against lesser contenders: a) Milk Chocolate – smoky burnt roast; b) Dark Chocolate – high dark w/ a berry-fruitwood-café finish
