Superfluous Matter
Chocolate Review, Valrhona Abinao

Last weekend I did a bunch of stuff (see the next post) and one of the activities took me to Dufflet where I picked up this chocolate bar in addition to delicious pastries.

The bar is 85% cocoa and is made from beans from Africa. It is smooth like the other Valrhona bars I've tried, which certainly takes the edge of the increased cocoa content. However smoothness isn't enough. The taste was very flat and uninteresting and the aftertaste was bitter and unpleasant. I wouldn't buy this one again.
