Chuao Spicy Maya

The fourth chocolate bar I tasted from the Californian chocolatier, from what I understand this is their most popular bar. It is their intent with this bar to go back to chocolate's origins, and combine traditional ingredients that the original chocolatiers, the Mayans, used, in this case cinnamon, chile and pepper. The other ingredients look good, with a cacao content of 60% and of Venezuelan origin, cacao mass, cacao butter, sugar, soy lecithin and natural vanilla, with the above spices.

How does it taste? Spicy, good dark chocolate, snaps well and smells quite spicy. Overall a good chocolate, but I would not say that this is my favourite of their offerings.
