Scharffen Berger – 70% Cacao Bittersweet

Scharffen Berger is hard to resist on two counts: it has a cool name, and it has bright, clean looking packaging. I picked up their 70% bittersweet bar from a grocery store to give it a try.

It has an earthy, slightly roasted smell, like coffee beans and cacao nibs. At first, the flavor is bitter, reflecting it’s aroma. As it melts, it develops a fruity tone, almost like apricot jam. It is sweeter than I would expect a 70% cacao to be, but in a pleasant way. It coats your entire mouth as it melts, and so the bittersweet cacao flavor lingers long after you’ve finished eating. 🙂
