Lake Champlain Spicy Aztec

January 11, 2014 - chocolate / top 10

Another of our favorite chocolatiers, Lake Champlain has a line of organic , which includes this fantastic bar: “An unexpected blend of , crunchy , and fragrant …”

This has a fantastic mouthfeel – more creamy and sweet than we’d expect. As soon as your mouth acclimates to the melting chocolate consistency, you bite into the crunchy pumpkin seeds, and you start to encounter the cinnamon and the cayenne. This bar packs a surprising amount of heat. Even better, is the heat and the seeds linger just a touch bit longer than the chocolate – almost giving it a cleansing effect. The heat dissappates, leaving the slightest hint of cinnamon on your lips. Fantastic. I think I’d include this in our Top 10….
