Some dark chocolate bars are super sweet, while the rest look to bring out dark and bold smoky flavors. So it is a rare opportunity a bar brings you a taste you may not have considered before. This is why we love the Carenero dark chocolate bar so much.
Now with this, recently launched, 70% bar, you can compare with its sister dark chocolate and determine what difference in flavor you can tell when only the percentage is the distinct element and all other ingredients are equal.
Franceschi’s Fine Carenero does not try to be anything else but a beautiful combination of citric notes and sweet spices, a zesty flavor that will come right up and hit you with the good stuff. By combining the tartness of fruits with the romance of the spices, it is nothing like your average store-bought dark chocolate.
The Franceschi Fine Carenero dark chocolate bar comes with cacao beans harvested from the northern coastline of Venezuela. Right where the Caribbean ocean kisses the shores of South America, you will find cacao beans that deliver some sweet-savory aromas and flavors. The Carenero bar smells a bit like coffee in the morning. With cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and coffee grounds that flow straight up and into nostrils as soon as you open up that forest green packaging. The flavors do not disappoint either. The Fine Carenero unapologetically brings you fresh papaya, a bit of nuttiness, and some spices that just melt in your mouth.
Enjoy it alone or in combination with other Franceschi bars and start to "fine tune" your palate!
