This adorable little box of Pacari organic chocolate covered guava was purchased on my recent trip to California at Chocolata. The chocolate comes from Ecuador and is sweetened with evaporated cane juice. Two ounces costs $4.50.
Tiny balls of chocolate covered guava, made in a variety of diameters, from minuscule to pea-size, were tightly packed into a 2″ x 1 1/2″ box. The smallest had no centers. In a way, that was a plus, as it gave me the opportunity to taste the chocolate sans guava. It was rustic, with notes of leather and soil. Since guava is a mild fruit it was easy to taste those flavors in the pieces encasing a fruit center.
Unlike other dried fruit, guava retains its softness; so, if you like that texture, you may want to try these.
I won’t be purchasing them again, as I found the chocolate unremarkable and the combination equally blah.
