Vosges Haut-Chocolat Matcha Green Tea & Spirulina Super Dark Chocolate Bar

One of the yummiest gifts that I got for my birthday last month was this matcha infused chocolate bar. Does my mom know me or what? I adore dark chocolate and matcha so any meeting of the two is guaranteed to be a hit. The chocolate is 72% cacao but the matcha made it seem like it was even darker than that. I've had a few different bars like this and have noticed the same affect in all of them.

The sweetness of the chocolate tends to mask the vegetal aspect of matcha but some of the umami taste was definitely apparent after eating a few squares. I don't think that I've ever had spirulina before but it did not seem to have affected the final product at all. The cacao nibs added a nice bit of crunch. I've been meaning to visit Vosge's New York boutiques and this certainly gives me a reason to.

Ingredients: dark chocolate, cacao nibs, matcha, spirulina powder
