Chocolate. I think one of the amazing things about it is that there are so manh kinds that all fall under that one word. Like this bar. If you ever come across someone who doubts that chocolate is like falling in love, please refer them to a 100% bar. They’ll be unable to betray such a love.
With both delight and caution I approached my second Pralus bar. Underneath its wrapper (this time not so crooked), it greets you with an enchantingly bitter smell. The first piece is also bitter on your tongue, with the kind of bitterness that stings. But about halfway through, a cool, sweet flavor ushers in the gentler part of the journey. Despite being dark, this is quite a fresh bar. The first piece can be a little difficult, but it’s much more amiable after that. I usually stop at one or two pieces, but this bar kept calling to me. The relationship between it and my mouth wasn’t ready to come to an end, just when it was becoming most tender. Instead, I finished one of the columns of four.
This bar was different from a 98% I once had. That one had the usual flavor notes of this or that, but this one, well, tasted more holy like chocolate. Er, I mean, wholly.
Not to the faint-hearted, but rather the tender-hearted, I recommend this loving chocolate or another 100% that you find. And we all have a little tenderness, don’t we? If it’s hidden for the moment, don’t worry: I’ve found that Pralus makes me very happy.
