This is a very interesting brand which I recently came across by pure accident. Never seen it before, never heard about, never talked about it. The company claims that they use only the purest ingredients possible in the most sustaining ways. That is off to a good start. "For us, chocolate isn't just a product, it's a journey from bean to bar." This is a direct quote from their website. It sounds like they are very serious about their chocolates and techniques that they utilize to make their bars the best that they can be. Good motto. I am planning a trip to Seattle in order to visit their chocolate factory. That should be interesting, and loads of fun. Chocolate sampling and buying, seriously, what more could a girl want? Alrighty then, Back to the review. The chocolate itself is bitter, despite the fact that this is only a 85% cocoa, it feels as though it is more like 99%. Theo certainly held off on the sugar as it is very miniscule and faint. I do not think that this bar melts nicely at all. There is virtually a sandy taste to the bar, and the bitter aftertaste that it leaves behind is completely unbearable. I love my dark chocolate, even at 99%, but there is just something about this bar that makes it so unappetizing. I cannot pinpoint whether it is the quality of the bean or mix of ingredients. It just does not work. This is going into my baking bin as I will not be eating anymore, anytime soon. It is not a bad dark chocolate, it is just not what I expected from a company that promises so much. What I do like about it though is the fact that it is Organic, Fair Trade, and Non GMO Verified. Yeahh for all of these, two thumbs up, jump with joy, okay, the point is made. I am sorry Theo, you just did not do it for me with this particular chocolate, not this time. I am sure that you have other eggs in your baskets for me to try, test, and review. Oh, I almost forgot, this bar deserves 5 stars in the ingredient department. This will affect my rating by pushing it up a bit. Check it out, pure and simple. Gotta love that.

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!
