IKEA Dark Chocolate

Ikea_dark

Here’s the third and final IKEA bar — Dark Chocolate.  As you can see, it is dark and shiny — very nicely tempered.  This is my favorite of the IKEA bars by far.

There isn’t a strong aroma on opening the package — just a mild chocolate smell.  The pieces break apart with a nice snap.  Upon putting the chocolate on your tongue, it begins to melt quickly — a bit dry at first, a very slight graininess.  The flavor is rich and fudgie — sweet and plain.  While there isn’t fruitiness, or spiciness — no overwhelming flavors other than chocolate — it is still quite nice.  At the finish there is a hint of coffee, or roasted nuts. 

I would definitely pick up this bar again — at only $2 it is a deal.
