You have my COMPLETE attention.
Do you know that the top 5 brain foods include chocolate ? I know, its crazy ....
And it just so happens that they are all my favorite as well.
Lindt came out with their 99% bar. I feel an urge to send them a thank you letter for all their great efforts.
In one of their articles it said:
Thomas Linemayr, CEO and President of Lindt & Sprüngli(USA) recommends this five-step sensory approach to tasting chocolate, and these simple skills can quickly turn anyone into a chocolate connoisseur. “The 99% Excellence Bar should appear very shiny, almost black, and with a uniform appearance. Its aroma should be very intense, with a predominantly smoky flavor. The chocolate should feel silky and slightly pliable to the touch, but on breaking apart, the sound should be an audible clean, crisp snap. These are all excellent indicators of a perfect bar of chocolate,” he explains.
There is a correct way to taste, smell and experience and even hear chocolate. A CD with the sounds of chocolate and no calories.
But like all good things in life its an acquired taste. I would not advise anyone to buy their first bite of heaven without trying milk chocolate first.
That being said, what to do with that bar...........ummm
Try a hot cup of chocolate with it. .....first then .....I have many ideas for it .
Do you know what strength is ?The ability to break a bar of 99% chocolate in four pieces and only have one piece ! Now that is strength.
LOL , love your post......I could do a Thesis on this topic easily ....
Chocolate and fleur de sel.....oh my.
