Godiva 50% Dark Chocolate with Orange
January 3, 2009 - chocolate
As soon as we tear the trademark gold foil open, we can smell the orange – yummy. What’s interesting about this one is the initial orange note is the high sweet orange, more aromatic, but then as the chocolate dissolves, you get the deeper, heartier orange flavor and mouthfeel within the chocolate. As you would expect from a Godiva gourmet bar, this is superbly smooth and almost too rich; this is expected from a 50% dark chocolate. You get the smoothness like a milk chocolate, and the deeper bass notes of a dark chocolate, and all of this enveloped in orange rind flavor.
Of course, I’d get this one again, but this is really an indulgent chocolate, almost too sweet to have too often.
