Zazubean Lunatic

Zazubean is a Canadian chocolatier whose Organic bars are manufactured in Switzerland, they make bars out of interesting combinations. This one features mint and cacao nibs, along with maca. The ingredient listing is good, cocoa mass, cane sugar, cocoa nibs, cocoa butter, maca, vanilla and peppermint oil. The cacao content is at 73%.

How does it taste? Mint and chocolate goes well together, but, in this bar, there is an underlying bitterness that could be attributed to the maca or the cacao nibs. The crunchiness of the cacao nibs is a little disconcerting and off-putting. This is one of my least favourite of the Zazubean bars that I've tasted, and I doubt that I would buy it again.
