Xocolata Jolonch has done it again with another wonderful chocolate creation. In line with their old world meets new standards, they have taken their traditional chocolate making techniques and applied them to modern flavors and combinations.
In this beautiful ode to South-East and East Asia, Xocolata Jolonch has taken the yuzu fruit, a fruit that looks like a lime that has been run over a couple of times by a child on a tricycle, and black sesame. These flavors are infused with cacao nibs to lend a slightly sour, slightly nutty flavor to the dark chocolate. While this is 70% dark chocolate and may be quite bitter, there is a certain level of refreshment that comes from the lemony-limy-grapefruity flavor of the yuzu mixed with the slight sweetness and obvious flavor of the black sesame. While not much in the way of sweetness to offset the bitterness, pairing this with a sweet nectar or rose would work very well.
