Green & Black's Maya Chocolate

I've seen this UK-based "Fairtrade" organic brand mentioned from time to time on the board, but had never seen it for sale until today when it showed up as a new product at the Century City Gelson's in LA.

I have a serious weakness for fruit-flavored chocolate bars, and I thought this one was something rather special. Nice dark chocolate, broke cleanly and melted nicely on the tongue, but probably nothing that Scharffen Berger couldn't beat. (But notably better than any other fairtrade/organic brand I've yet tried from Whole Foods, TJ's or similar places.)

But the spicy orange flavoring was another matter; I couldn't quite place the spices but that didn't stop me from wolfing down the whole bar like Charlie Bucket eating a Wonka Scrumdiddlyumptious. What was it? Allspice? Pepper? Oak? Well, their website says it's nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla, and I say it's an addiction waiting to happen.
