If you want to read the first part where I tried Amedei’s Tocano Red and Tocano Blond bars, go here! Otherwise, let’s move on to a couple of bars that have more flavor depth to them.
Number 9, 75% bar
This bar smelled nutty and fruity. My bite started as a flavor combination of tartness, earthiness and a touch of sweetness. Then it turned into a earthy and nutty combo halfway through my bite with a hint of astringency. Toward the end, the earthiness melted away to just nuttiness. It had a very interesting flavor story and you can see why Amedei has pride in calling their chocolate “complex.”
This bar smelled nutty. (Why do all Amedei bars smell nutty to me? The boyfriend agrees with me on this too.) At first my bite tasted a little tart, berry-like and nutty. The tartness went away halfway through my bite, but the berry and nuttiness remained. My bite ended with just nuttiness. The boyfriend tasted hazelnut and blueberry.
I liked the Chuao bar better. The 9 bar had more tartness/astringency than I personally like. I just got an order containing Amedei’s hazelnut bar that I’ll be trying soon. I don’t think I’ll write a blog post about it, but I’ll be sharing it on Instagram. Click on the icon on the right side bar to see my Instagram page and keep an eye out for that hazelnut bar!
