Vosges Habana Bar


This past week our family went on its annual holiday shopping trip in downtown Chicago.  Maddie loves going to the Lego and Sanrio stores and I always have to take a peek inside Vosges (luckily all in the same shopping center!)  There is always something new and promising at the Vosges shop and the people who work there are super friendly and helpful. 

This time I picked up one of the new Habana chocolate bars.  It's one of their organic bars and is made with deep milk chocolate (45% cacao) and Ecudorian plaintain chips.  Quite a nice combination of flavor and texture.

Upon first breaking off a square you get the fragrance of tobacco and spice.  Then placing it on your tongue you are hit with a myriad of flavors — banana and fruit, salt, caramel and a lingering earthiness — it really wakes up your tongue!  After letting it melt a bit and beginning to chew, there is an amazing texture — crisp and delicately crunchy. 

Another amazing bar from Vosges!  This is at the top of my list along with the Barcelona Bar.  A must try for all you chocolate & salt fans.
