Taza Chocolate Vanilla

The American chocolatier Taza Chocolate makes artisan chocolate using traditional Mexican stone mills. This one features the flavour of whole vanilla beans; vanilla is a normal ingredient in a lot of bars, so this should showcase the taste of their cacao. The ingredient listing is good, organic cacao beans, organic cane sugar and organic whole vanilla beans. The cacao content is at 50%. The ingredients are also all Organic.

How does it taste? This should be one of their showcase chocolate bars, there is very little to flavour the chocolate and spoil the experience of the bar. Once again, Mexican chocolate, stone ground chocolate, makes for a crunchy bar, that one has to get used to. I did not taste the whole vanilla beans at all. The chocolate otherwise was reasonably good, though not one I really enjoyed. I don't think that I would buy this bar again.
