Godiva 72% Cocoa Dark Chocolate

Manufacturer: Godiva Chocolatier
Cocoa Content: 72%
Manufacturer Website
Rating: B

Up for review today is a 72% Cocoa Dark Chocolate bar from Godiva. This is a thin bar that is dark purplish-brown in color. The pieces break off with a crisp snap. The bar has a rich, chocolate flavor. It seems rather sweet for a 72% cocoa bar. There is only a faint acidity and minimal bitterness. There are notes of peanuts, honey and lemonade. Chewing the bar brings forward notes of vanilla, cocoa and almonds. The finish is remiscent of hot cocoa. The Godiva 72% bar has a smooth, mouth-coating texture.

The Godiva 72% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Bar has a powerful chocolate flavor and seems more sweet than bitter for a chocolate at 72% cocoa. The flavor is pretty straightforward, but it is quite enjoyable nonetheless. It would make a great beginner dark chocolate for someone who isn't into the bitterness of very dark chocolate.
