Loving that Tanzania chocolate! Except, of course, for the price.
But there was just one thing that I noticed. The description of the origin of the cacao beans used to make the chocolate (Tanzania) and the percentage of cacao solids sounded familiar to me. So I did a little checking I realized that Cacao Barry, a popular chocolate supplier to the industry, has a Tanzania (or Tanzanie as they call it) origin chocolate with 75% cacao solids (see online here). I actually had a box of it in the past and made all sorts of confections out of it. So we can guess who Sorini gets their chocolate couverture supply from!
I could have purchased a box of Cacao Barry's Origin chocolate for less $ per gram and made myself all sorts of chocolate bars at a fraction of the cost!
Oh well, for now I will just enjoy my Tanzanian tastiness.
