Franceschi Dark Chocolate - Fine Rio Caribe

If you were to travel to the Paria Peninsula in Venezuela, you would find the ocean waves falling onto the white sand beaches. Beautiful scenery in and of itself is only elevated with the dramatic, lush mountains in the background. A quick tour of the peninsula and you may come across some cacao beans used to make Franceschi’s dark chocolate Río Caribe bar. These beans are minimally processed to bring out its unique flavors.

 

The ingredient list is simple, some cacao mass, cacao butter, sugar and soy lecithin, an emulsifier which usually improves mouthfeel or texture.  All these elements allow for the richness of the beans to be brought through with some magnificent combination of flavors.

 

You may be able to get away with enjoying the Rio Caribe dark chocolate bar for breakfast. While it smells like an enchanting aroma of spices, a single bite will fill your mouth with the flavors of warm toast topped with fresh red berries. It will also go well on a Sunday afternoon with a loved one or a cold winter afternoon. Open the package to find an aromatic treat to enjoy that will bring you a bit of warmth you never knew a dark chocolate bar could.
