Origin 64

I came across this chocolate box in Walmart, of all places, Lily O'Brien's is the first Irish chocolatier that I have come across. These dark chocolate pieces have a cacao content of 64%, the cocoa beans coming exclusively from Costa Rica, the Trinitario varietal. According to the info in the box, this chocolate boasts a delicate woody bouquet enhanced by a bittersweet cocoa aroma. I can certainly say that they taste really good, melt in your mouth easily, snap apart satisfyingly, all around a great chocolate. They make a number of different chocolates, some filled, some just pure chocolate. They recommend, too, eating these alone, with the curtains drawn and the lights turned down, and to not tell anybody the reason for such, to 'keep them in the dark'.
