Chocovic Guaranda Chocolate

I'm a Canadian.  Candy is (in general) expensive in Canada.  Especially the organic stuff.  Or single origin stuff.  Actually, specialty foods in general is expensive.

So, the bar of Chocovic chocolate sitting on my desk is not bought in Canada, it was actually bought at a Trader Joe's just across the border.  The wrapping looked interesting, the description of the chocolate was about as complex as a description that goes with a good bottle of wine.  Floral tones?  Chocoate is chocolate, right?

As it turns out, it isn't.  I broke off a piece and was kind of in shock for a while.  The chocolate was very smooth.  None of it melted in my hands, and it melted quite gradually in my mouth.  Apart from the wonderful texture though, the flavor was very complex.  I did taste the floral tones, but I'm not quite sure what exactly they were; it reminded me a little of Tazo Passion tea.  It had a deep flavor.  It wasn't too bitter or too sweet, but very well balanced.  It also didn't leave behind a sour or bitter aftertaste, which I find some chocolates do.

I think I'm in love.  I think I'll try the other chocolate bars by this company.
