While flavored bars are all well and good, sometimes it’s best to get a good look at just how good a chocolatier is by checking out their plain bars. Since I was fairly impressed by the Domori fusion bars, both white and milk chocolate based, I wanted to see how well they could construct a plain dark chocolate bar.
And what better way to examine this than to check out their Peurtomar, a 75% cocoa bar created using the highly-regarded Criollo beans exclusively.
Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? Check out how small the bar inside is.
Not cool on the overpackaging, Domori. Not cool. Be honest with us about what we’re paying for.
When I opened the puny little package, I was greeted with an aroma of almond and cherry, with a hint of smoke and cream as well.
This chocolate is immediately intense, with a bit of a coffee flavor building into a more intense cherry flavor with a bit of sitrus at the end. The strong, pleasing flavor is enhanced by a superbly smooth melt, and it’s difficult to find any fault with this bar.
Except the trickery in packaging.
Have you ever had over-packaged chocolate that was smaller than you thought? Were you mad?
