Åkesson's Brazil Fazenda Sempre Firme 75% cacao

As this chocolate dissolves, a taste of toffee is prominent. Some cherry flavors arise in the aftertaste, which is moderately bitter. 9.1

Ingredients: Cocoa (min. 75%), cane sugar, pure cocoa butter, emulsifier (GMO-free soya lecithin).

$9 / 2.2 oz. (60 g)

The label sports two awards -- the Academy of Chocolate award is fairly clear, but what is "Great Taste 2017"? Checking out their website, one can find that it is a British group focused on identifying fine local foods.  While Åkesson's is based on London, the label indicates that the bar is made in France.

From the label:
"The chocolate we developed from these beans is smooth, woody and earthy. It has also expressive notes that evoke autumn scents, tobacco and the local pitanga fruit."
