It’s been a while since I’ve had some Fruition chocolate so during the 2018 D.C. Chocolate Festival I stopped by Fruition’s table, said hello to Emma working there and picked these two bars up.
The 100% bar has been recommended to me by multiple people and while my taste buds have yet to fully appreciate 100% bars, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to at least give it a try. The scent of this bar reminded me of cocoa powder and it was little fruity. The flavor strongly reminded me of cocoa powder but quickly developed into raspberry and tannic flavors. The strong cocoa flavor remained through the end of my bite. Despite my not yet being in love with 100% bars I do appreciate that this had some natural raspberry flavor to help balance out the tannic.
The Irving Farm coffee bar has a subtle coffee scent and it tasted lightly fruity and in general like coffee, which I really liked! The chocolate itself also tasted subtle and chocolaty. It was smooth and delicious. The fruitiness lingered into the aftertaste. I would definitely get another of these!
