Monbana Dark

The latest chocolate bar I tried was from a French chocolatier called Monbana, they have been in business since 1934. This dark chocolate bar boasts 70% cocoa content, and the ingredient listing is small, a good sign, just cocoa mass, sugar and soya lecithin (as an emulsifier). It does not say where the cacao beans come from. The chocolate tastes good, it snaps apart well, it melts fairly easily in the mouth, the best way to eat dark chocolate, though it seems a little dry if you chew it, likely because of the high cacao content.

If I recall correctly, I bought this at Winners around Christmastime, when they often have lots of variety of chocolate for sale.
