ChocoLove organic 73% dark chocolate bar

Ah, organic. It’s such an over-used word, showing up on labels everywhere. People try to buy it because they understand it to be better (whatever “better” means) but there’s a lot of confusion about what it actually means.

Labelling aside, let’s talk about taste. Even as recently as a couple of years ago, organic chocolate was pretty awful. A lot of it tasted like dirt, was chalky, or was just plain disgusting. Thankfully, there are a number of good options on the market now, and they won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Chocolove’s 73% organic dark chocolate bar is a glowing example. In February 2008, it was named as one of Bon Appetit’s top organic chocolate bars. But never mind the hype – it’s just a really good chocolate bar. It’s nice and rich, with hints of coffee and just enough bitterness to make me want to have this with a lovely glass of port.

ChocoLove is available here (mostly in the US, but some online sources probably ship to Canada) or you can buy directly from them online.
