Scharffen Berger Semisweet

The third of the Fine Artisan 85 g bars that the US chocolatier Scharffen Berger produces, this one has 62% cacao content. I noticed today their logo, interesting, which appears in the middle of their bar, and is surrounded by triangle "squares" of chocolate. The ingredient listing, like the other bars in this line, is short, unsweetened chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin and natural vanilla flavour.

How does it taste? According to the wrapper, it is supposed to have citrus flavours with honey overtones. Certainly, I get that it is fruity, and given the hint, I can taste the "honey" flavour. Unlike the other two bars that I have tasted in this series, and given that this has lower cacao content is a surprise, I like the flavour of this one, and could eat this bar again. For some reason, I found these bars on sale at a Dollar store for $1 (normally $4 - $5). I wasn't complaining, just found it intriguing, as they were not past their expiry date.
