Pure solid bittersweet chocolate. Rich and complex and dark and wonderful.
I know it's called the Semisweet Bar but I just described it as "bittersweet." The difference between bittersweet & semisweet is so wiggly these days as to be almost meaningless, so we don't sweat it. Our bars are right on the line, and could go either way. The amount of "bitterness" in a bar is pretty subjective and even listing a percentage of sweetness (ours is around 66%) isn't always a good guide, since sugar and cocoa butter are the other main players in a chocolate bar, and chocolate makers can fiddle with both to acheive a desired flavor, texture, mouthfeel, terroir, etc etc. So you could have a 65% chocolate bar that's sweeter than a 55%, depending on how much cocoa butter is in it, ya dig? Anyway our basic bar, this here lil babe, is real nice.
