When I first saw this chocolate and especially the title, which of course, caught my attention, I was a bit amused and very eager to try. Who does not love almonds combined with chocolate and topped off with sprinkles of salt. Uhmmm, yumm. I am happy to say that just like all Theo bars, this one is organic, fair trade, and NON-GMO verified. How can a chocolate bar be GMO, I do not understand it. Can someone please explain that to me! Would the cocoa beans be GMO, and if so, how dare you? No seriously. How can that many foods in North America be altered and grown not in their natural state. I am just appalled!!! Okay, this calls for a very different discussion at another time which I am very open to, but in the meantime, let me get back on track and onto the review. I am actually very pleased with the taste of the Theo Salted Almond 70% Dark Chocolate bar. It has just a touch of saltiness integrated. It is not too little nor too much, perfect might I add. Also, there is a fairly good amount of almonds in this bar, Theo was certainly not cheap with that ingredient. The dark chocolate is not too bitter and has a very nice melting action, nothing grainy here! None of the ingredients overwhelm each other, and are instead, complementary. I was reaching for more. Oh yeahhhh. Overall, a huge fascination with this delight. What a surprise. I will be purchasing this bar for my own personal consumption. Theo, you got this one right. Standing ovation it is.

Affordable but still Savory
This blog page is dedicated to inexpensive chocolates that are continuously, to this day, enjoyed daily by many chocolate lovers out there. I still happily delve my taste buds into a good old-fashioned, so tasty, and yet simple Mr. Goodbar. To top it off, the cost allows for a much "Sweeter" satisfaction on your fuller wallet!
