hispaniola by Hummingbird Chocolate

June 20, 2016

I blogged about Hummingbird Chocolate last week.

hispaniola – tasting notes:

First taste: definitely fruity. On the edge of dry. Smooth. Creamy. Golden raisin. Slight after taste, but pleasant.  Michael called it a “bright fruitiness.”

Second taste: pleasant chocolate scent. Fruit is again very upfront. Cherry through and through. Aftertaste is stronger and lingered longer the second time. Mouth coating but not unpleasant.

Definitely a quality bar. Grade A.

Then I tried the Fleur de Sel a few days later. This award winning bar is made with the hispaniola chocolate and sprinkled with hand-harvested Fleur de Sel from the Vancouver Island Salt Co. As much as I liked the hispaniola on its own, it was INSANELY good with the added salt. And I usually loathe anything added to my chocolate.

I only have two pieces of the Fleur de Sel left. I had to force myself to not eat it all in one go … it was that good. Grade A++

I’m exceedingly pleased with this new discovery. 😀

    I am so not good at keeping any of my chocolate for later. Is it all at once or not at all 🙂

      I’m usually good at savouring new chocolate but only because I have so much of it in the house.

    I visited their online store and read all of the descriptions! I am hoping to be able to buy some; I’m in the US.

      I’m not sure about their shipping, Sharon. I usually run into the opposite trouble – no shipping to Canada! 😛 The Fleur de Sel is especially worth checking out. So tasty … I only have one piece remaining now.
