Chocolates Del Turista Rama Amargo

I found this unusual chocolate at Cost Plus World Market.

“Bitter Twirled Chocolate”?! This label had me at 70% cacao, and the fact that it was the first chocolate I would ever try from Argentina! I could barely believe that I had never had chocolate from that country, but my blog tags did not have Argentina listed.

Inside the box were two large squares of dark chocolate laces, all roped around each other.

I thought the chocolate looked too light in this photo, so I held a piece up to get a better picture.

That’s better! So dark and luscious! The squares broke easily vertically, but it was hard to break them horizontally without them crumbling, but I managed to break both squares into about three dozen pieces. That was a lot, and a good thing too, because my co-workers loved this chocolate! It disappeared quickly and was totally gone in about fifteen minutes. I had to save a piece for someone who was in a meeting!

I loved this chocolate too. It was very rich tasting, almost fudge-like. It reminded me of the Blue Frog Dark Chocolate I had just tried a few days before. I think I will pick up more of it, and I don’t think my co-workers will mind a do-over. It was just that good!
