Anthon Berg Chocolate Origins Ghana - Dark Intensity

The fourth of the Chocolate Origins line from Anthon Berg (the others being Venezuela, New Guinea and Ecuador), this one features cacao beans from the African country Ghana; these beans are Forastero (both the cocoa mass and the nibs). With 60% cacao content, the ingredient listing looks good, cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, finely chopped roasted cocoa beans and rapeseed/canola lecithin as an emulsifier.

How does it taste? It smells very good, if a little sweet and fruity, snaps well and does not taste chalky, rather fruity. The cacao nibs give it a good crunch. I don't have a good source for these bars, nor even really a source at all, but, if I did, I would buy this bar again.
