Taza Naranja y Canela Chocolate

Yum yum yum. The weather is hot outside but I'm snacking on the latest release from Taza, slated for a December introduction in time for the holidays. The Naranja y Canela dark chocolate wheel is delightful, just as nuanced as their other bars, with a distinctly wintry twist. Featuring vanilla bean, orange oils, cinnamon, cloves and other spices, each bite recalls the warm, spicy flavors of the holiday season.

The flavors in this bar are so nuanced! The banana-hinted chocolate base yields and transitions smoothly to the spices. While the orange isn't as forward as some dark chocolate orange zest bars I've had, there's a distinctly floral flavor that brings out the bittersweet flavors in the cinnamon bark. It's delicious, and I love the grainy texture. It's a very rustic bar, versatile for all functions and needs. I love using these in baking and making hot drinks out of them, too.
