Vosges Haut Chocolat Caramel Bar, Blood Orange

Hibiscus flower; blood orange caramel; bitter orange liqueur; dark chocolate. 70% cacao. How to Enjoy an Exotic Chocolate Bar: Breathe - Engage your senses. Take three deep ujjayi breaths, quiet the chattering mind and be in the present moment. See - There should be a glossy shine to the chocolate bar indicating a tight bond between the cocoa butter and the cocoa mass. Smell - Rub your thumb on the chocolate bar's surface to help release the aromas of bright citrus and cacao. Inhale deeply. Snap - Break the bar in two pieces. Listen to the soft break, exposing the chocolate bar's molten caramel interior. Taste - Place a small piece of chocolate on your tongue and press it to the roof of your mouth. Within thirty seconds the chocolate square will melt, releasing a bouquet of bittersweet orange amongst tart hibiscus. The blood orange has a flavor similar to a hybrid of a tangerine and pomelo. Its crimson interior is a result of a red pigment called anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant that is not typically found in other citrus fruits. Anthocyanin is believed to neutralize free radicals in the body. Peace, love, and chocolate - Katrina.
