The Chocolate of Modica, the color is dark black with greenish brown earthy, almost rough, with coarse grains of sugar left to give, in addition to the special flavor, almost like a gloss of reflections “marble stone”, and his taste Cocoa round, velvety that persists; aromas in their quality accompanying divinely.
This 50% dark chocolate bar with natural lemon zest is from the oldest producer of chocolate in Modica, Sicily Ground raw cocoa beans are mixed with sugar crystals at very low heat, then the mixture is pressed into bar-shaped pans to cool. This simple process preserves the natural cocoa butter, minerals and antioxidants, and results in a very robust cocoa flavor. Because there are no binding agents used, the chocolate is somewhat crumbly in texture, and the sugar crystals pop in your mouth as they melt. Sicily is also known for its lemon production, and this bar incorporates a touch of lemon zest which offsets some of the natural sweetness of the sugar. No soy lethicin or other smoothers are used -- the ingredients are cocoa mass, sugar and lemon zest
