Today's Chocolate

Today's chocolate is a square of Ghirardelli Intense Dark Evening Dream: 60% Dark Chocolate with a hint of Madagascan Vanilla. I have always enjoyed Ghirardelli, I try to use it in baking as much as possible, and when we saw this bar at Fresh Market we had to try. This particular bar offers a velvety dark texture and mild dark taste. "Hint" is appropriate to describe the vanilla, because it s very subtle. Unlike yesterday's Lindt bar when the flavors seemed to make themselves known gradually, it isn't so pronounced here. You really have to concentrate to get that supplement of vanilla.

Overall, though, I like the flavor. It doesn't have the bitterness of other darker chocolates.
