Sarotti No. 1 Ecuador

The third chocolate bar from the Sarotti No. 1 series contains cacao beans from Ecuador. The bean varietals that this country is well known for are Arriba Superior, Navida and Epoca. I have liked other chocolate bars with beans from Ecuador, and this one is no exception. Again, the ingredients are pretty good, cocoa mass, sugar and soya lecithin as an emulsifier, with a minimum cocoa content of 72%. The bar, though, was a less smooth tasting than the other Ecuadoran bars that I have tasted, a little to the chalky side. Still good, I'm seeming to like the beans from this country.
