Ülker Golden Bitter

This is the first chocolate I've ever tried that is made in Turkey. The ingredient listing looks good, cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin and ethyl vanillin, while the cacao content is at 70%.

How does it taste? I must say I'm pleasantly surprised, as I wouldn't think Turkey is the source world-class chocolate (but they are a world-class producer of hazelnuts, so it'd be interesting to get one that is dark with hazelnuts!). Nor is this world-class chocolate, but fairly good. It reminds me of very dark mousse chocolate, melts well in the mouth and has a good aftertaste, snaps well, and smells fruity. I found this in a Chinese supermarket for about $2, and would buy this again.
