Seven different types of cacao in new chocolate

[A new dark chocolate has been created that blends cacao beans from Central America, South America, Africa and Asia into a unique product.

E Guittard Nocturne 91 per cent Cacao Extra Dark Chocolate is the new addition to the E Guittard line of blended chocolates.

The company claims that the new blend combines "aromas of ripe cherry and deep chocolate foreshadow complex layers of tart citrus, red fruit and nutty notes held up by a solid chocolate base. Medium-bodied, it is silky-smooth on the palate with a long finish".

E Guittard recommends pairing the Nocturne 91 per cent Cacao Extra Dark Chocolate with summer fruits, such as cherries, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.

Recent studies have indicated that chocolate is better for consumers when it has a high cacao percentage and Guittard uses careful fermentation and drying techniques after harvest to produce high-quality products.

Guittard Chocolate was founded in 1868 by French chocolatier Etienne Guittard in San Francisco and has grown into a global brand, working directly with growers to create innovative new blends.]

I can feel my cheeks (facial) drawing in at the thought.

91% sounds too strong for me.
Who needs karma when you know you're great already?
