Bar of the Week: Valrhona's Palmira

Prepare yourself to say hello and goodbye to our new bar of the week, Valrhona's Palmira.  Made from criollo cacao grown on the Palmira plantation in west Venezuela, this 64% dark chocolate features notes of high-pectin fruits such as apple and quince, underlined by a pronounced honeyed sweetness that lingers for a long finish.

Valrhona has announced that it is discontinuing this delectable bar, so quantities are limited and once they're gone, they're gone for good.  If you haven't yet tried Palmira, don't miss this chance to get acquainted.  And if Palmira is one of your favorites, you might consider stocking up (consider that properly stored dark chocolate will keep indefinitely.  

Stop by on Christmas Eve to savor a sample of Valrhona's Palmira--and of course, to pick up any last-minute treats or gifts for the chocolate lovers on your list.
