Poulain Noir Café

Another chocolate bar I tried from the French chocolatier, Poulain, owned by Cadbury, is part of their line of special chocolate bars called 1848, so called because they have been in existence since 1848. This selection, containing 64% cocoa content, is called Noir Café, or Coffee Dark. Its ingredients listing is short, just dark chocolate (made of unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, cocoa powder, sugar, soy lecithin and natural flavour), caramelized cocoa nibs and coffee. There is no indication as to the origin of the cacao beans. The chocolate has a good coffee flavour, if you like the pairing of the two, and the caramelized cocoa nibs add a good sharp taste to this bitter tasting chocolate, far better tasting than the Ultime Noir I tried earlier.
