Chocolution 36: Patric, 70% Signature Blend

I think I'm getting jaded. But these bars that follow the basic "nothing but cacao and sugar" philosophy all seem to have a similar taste. This one really reminded me of that Dandelion bar so I wasn't surprised when I discovered that the Patric Signature Blend bar is based on a similar philosophy of simplicity.

And, unfortunately, I have decided that simplicity does not produce my favorite bars. Don't get me wrong. This bar (and the Dandelion bar I had months ago) is very very good. It will beat common gutter chocolate every time. It's just that I like some of the fancy bars that throw in more ingredients better. The simplicity bars all seem to have this bitter aftertaste that lingers.
