Time for bar #3. After a mild disappointment with the Sea Salt Dark Chocolate bar from Lindt, I decided to go back to the drawing board and stick to just plain (dark) chocolate. The selection was slim at the store I stopped by yesterday but I had to get something since I was completely out. This little baby caught my eye....90%?! Indeed.

I figured if the 75% Ecuadorian chocolate was fantastically delicious, the 90% Cacao Dark Chocolate Bar sould be all that much more delightful to my palatte, no?
Wow. Ick. Ack. Gag. I've crossed the line. This is TOOOOO much cacao for me. There was absolutely no pleasure in eating this whatsoever. My tastebuds revolted at the first bite. Slightly bitter, not even a hint of sweetness, 90% was just too overpowering. The description of the bar says it included "a gentle buttery texture and light vanilla notes". I didn't get any of that in this bar. Remember how I said I wouldn't waste decent chocolate? Yeah, I think in this case I will be. I'll try and struggle through until I can grab another bar but this was just not edible to me.
