Product: Alter Eco Dark Mint Chocolate
Price: $3.99 for 3.5 oz at Whole Foods
Type of chocolate: at least 61% cacao from Bolivia
My notes: Strong mint scent upon opening wrapper. Smooth and dark appearance. Fairly soft snap and bite, but it was a hot day. Very light, almost like aerated chocolate, with fine grainy texture nearly like Taza stone-ground chocolate. Initially mild mint flavor that fades to pure chocolaty-ness. Addicting.
Overall rating (out of five stars): ****
