Terravita Cocoacara Coffee & Cardamom


This offering from the Polish chocolatier Terravita is one of two that I recently found at The Apple Market (they make a whole range of chocolate bars in numerous flavour combinations, but only three that are dark chocolate with high cacao content). The cacao content of this bar is 77%. The ingredient listing looks good, cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, fat-reduced cocoa powder, coffee (1.1%), cardamom (0.5%), soya lecithin and flavourings.



How did it taste? The cardamom was not too strong but I think overwhelming if you don't like the taste (which I do) and there was an underlying mustiness or earthiness to the flavour (perhaps it was the type of cardamom). The coffee flavour I did not get. Overall, I would say that cardamom pairs well with chocolate (and I have made cookies that worked well), but the combination of flavourings ultimately failed in this bar. I don't think I would buy this bar again.

I loved this chocolate bar! However I can't find where to purchase it again. Found a one time buy at TJ Maxx's. Does anyone know where else I can purchase it?

Make that 4! Found it at Marshalls during the holiday season. Among the best chocolate bars I've ever had. Surprised this guy didn't care for it, but I love coffee.
