Dagoba Super Fruit dark chocolate
March 14, 2008 - chocolate
The third chocolate in our Dagoba trilogy this evening is the Super Fruit. Made with acai powder, goji berries and currants – where does these guys in Oregon come up with these ingredients? It’s not like we walk into a Trader Joes and find this in the dried fruit and nuts section… So goji berries are really wolfberries, grown predominately in the Chinese Himalayans, and have a sweet taste and when dried, the consistency of hard raisins.
Another dark chocolate (for those keeping score, this is 74% cocoa like the spicy Xocolatl) this is interspersed with currants and berries, and it works well. There’s a slight sweetness and light fruity scent that develops, gently overlaying the thick bitterness of the chocolate. I’m attracted to ginger, but I have to say I like this bar better than the lemon ginger.
