Godiva 85% Cacao Santo Domingo Dark Chocolate

3.5oz (100g) bar
Ingredients: Chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla
5g sugar/40g serving (12.5% by wt.)

The Godiva bar is thinner and flatter than many of the other bars I’ve eaten, making it seem more “crunchy” and light for that reason alone, though the “snap” might be reduced in warmer weather. The chocolate is a bit waxy, with a hint of grit and powderiness. The flavor is mouth-filling and fruity, but not as heavy as some with similar cacao content, perhaps
because of the added cocoa butter.

Conclusion: This is a fine bar but nothing remarkable, so it probably won’t be making a reappearance in the chocolate basket.
