Torku Bitter Cikolata

I’m not 100% sure how I came across this Torku Bitter Cikolata bar. A little Googling reveals that Torku is a Turkish company with its?own Twitter feed.

The dark chocolate bar came in 6 segments, each with a raised wedge with the Torku logo on it. The bar had an extremely sharp snap, an indication of its high cacao content, while the bar’s smooth melt showed off its nice tempering.

The chocolate started off dry and dusky before mellowing out to a mild sweetness with cocoa undertones. Its finish was a tad sweeter than I expected – more semisweet than bitter.

It was a nice, if not especially remarkable, chocolate for snacking, and I bet it would go great in chocolate chip cookies. An OM.
