Chocolate, 11/26/14

5 Stars

Baci, by Perugina. The label reads, “Dark chocolate and hazelnut chocolate crème with whole hazelnuts.” ’nuff said.

3 Stars

Espresso Dark Chocolate, from World Market. Pretty straight-ahead bar with just a hint of espresso.

Pure 85% Dark Chocolate, from sweet riot. Sweet riot’s dark chocolate is good, but barely carries a bar by itself.

5 star chocolate

Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt & crushed organic Coffee. Salazon Chocolate Co. Taza-like texture, but wrapped in foil to keep weird odors out. Eat slowly, as the coffee flavor is muted, and shows up strongest at the end of a bite.

4 star chocolate

Dark Chocolate with Kickin’ Coconut. Sweet Riot. 4 stars because it’s being compared to Vosges’ best (their Dark Coconut Ash & Banana), not because of any real deficiency.

Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt & a touch of organic Caramel. Salazon Chocolate Co. Sea salt and caramel has become passe of late, but Salazon executes the combination well.

Dark Twist Chocolate. Alter Eco. It’s dark chocolate with crystallize orange peel. Normally, orange-flavored chocolate reminds one of candy, but this one is actually orange.
