Pralus Colombie 75%

Pralus_colombie

The Pralus Colombie is a 75% chocolate bar made in France.  From what I understand from looking at their website, Pralus owns it’s own plantation and grows their beans there in Madagascar.  So while the name is Colombie — this implies that the plants come from Columbia but are grown in Madagascar.  Another page says they import beans from around the world.  At any rate, this chocolate is made from Trintario beans. 

I tried this bar with my 7 year old daughter and she said she liked it, so I would say this is a mild dark chocolate.  In fact, I found that it was too mild for me — I wanted something richer and more assertive.  There is a bit of bitterness reminiscent of coffee at the end, but mostly it tastes bright but meek and leaves a slightly dry feeling in the mouth.
