Hachez Cocoa D'Aribba Blackberry and Cocoa Nibs

The German chocolatier Hachez uses cocoa beans from Ecuador to make a number of different chocolate bars. This particular bar is at 77% cacao content. Its ingredient listing is short, cocoa beans, sugar, cocoa butter, natural flavourings, natural flavourings blackberries, lemon acid and Bourbon vanilla.

How did it taste? I don't like the fact that there is no real fruit in here, nor apparently any cocoa nibs in the ingredient listing. The bar tasted sour on first tasting, though as I ate more, I became accustomed to the taste, and it tasted better. The chocolate itself is fairly good and tasty. I still would like this not to be a flavoured bar. I don't think I would buy this bar again.
