Malie Kai clearly demonstrated their ability to put out a nice milk chocolate bar in the plain bar that I reviewed yesterday. How about dark chocolate? Their plain Dark Chocolate bar, also made with cacao from the North Shore of Oahu, would answer this question.
Upon unwrapping the bar, I was greeted with a faint aroma of raspberry, perhaps complimented by a bit of cheese, which was a welcome surprise.
I tasted a bit of mint immediately, and then found some raspberry flavor followed by a bit of coffee and banana at the end. The chocolate is a bit sweeter than most dark chocolates, but the flavor is quite complex despite not being intense. The buttery melt is top-notch, and the fact that it is quite slow allowed me to enjoy the diverse flavor longer. This bar is a must-buy should you visit Oahu, if only for the texture.
What are your thoughts on sweeter dark chocolates?
