Nativa Organics Dark Chocolate - sweet, smooth and just right
What is nice about this organic chocolate bar is: it does not taste like a traditional organic chocolate bar. I find that most organic chocolate has a distinct, earthy or woodsy flavour that overwhelms the chocolate flavour. This bar is chocolaty and sweet. In fact, it is a very sweet dark chocolate, without being sickeningly sweet as some dark chocolate can be. I would use this in a recipe for a semi-sweet chocolate truffle or for ganache (cream & chocolate) for a cake topper. It's just the right sweetness for that sort of thing, because I think it would please most palates (i.e. people who like both dark and milk chocolate).
This Nativa chocolate bar would also be great on a dreary rainy day when you need an afternoon chocolate wake-me-up. It has a sunny and happy feel to it.
