Ghirardelli announced this week the launch of a new chocolate variety in its line of Intense Dark Chocolates, "Midnight Reverie" an 86 percent cacao bar, one of the highest cacao content bars widely available nationwide.
The famed chocolate maker cites a growing obsession with dark chocolates in America, with sales figures having grown 49 percent from 2003 to 2006, culminating in $1.2 billion in sales last year.
Ghirardelli describes the Midnight Reverie as having a deep, full bodied flavor, with hints of dark cherries, dried plums and a roasted flavor. It has a "supremely smooth texture" with a fine, crisp snap.
