So, B calls to let me know he's on his way home. He says he "has something for me." He tried to be mysterious. I say, "Chocolate?!" Big sigh on his part. Like I would guess anything else.
He brings home El Rey Bucare 58.5% Dark Chocolate. The wrapper boasts using only Venezuelan cacao beans. It is a very sweet bar and at the same time holds a somewhat bitter dark chocolate taste. It has a strong taste, almost fruity to me because of the sugar, like a cross between a milk chocolate and a rich dark chocolate. Which is what it really is.
I've never declared that I was amongst the chocolate elite, the snobs. I certainly don't have the right terminology to describe the chocolate. Try this review. It has a picture of the bar's bright orange wrapper.
I didn't ask B how much he spent, I'm afraid to. Chocolate can get expensive, and price is one of the factors involved when deciding to buy, but I think I'd get it again. Part of the reason is I had to share the bar. Four 1 inch by 1 inch squares is not enough. Hey, now that I think about it he said he had something for me. I shouldn't have had to share! He owes me...
