A snack that loves you back... this is delicious. Certified organic 70% cocoa chocolate bar with 4,000mg of maca added. You can taste it in there - but not in a bad way. Those of you who might have gotten a little heavy handed with maca in smoothies etc might know what I'm talking about. Maca has a very distinctive flavor which blends very well with chocolate, but its … [Read more...] about Vega Sequel Macasure Maca Chocolate Bar (40g)
I picked up this delicious little bar when I was visiting the San Diego area, it's only 1 ounce, but wow was it GOOD! Ingredients consist of only: cacao butter, cacao powder, and coconut nectar and is gluten free. Really nice uncomplicated and pure chocolate flavor, for a slightly daunting price... small size does help for people who are still struggling with … [Read more...] about Tonic Scene Raw Organic Vegan Dark Chocolate Sweetened with Coconut Nectar 70% Cacao
Not only does it have an adorable looking spider monkey on the wrapper, 10% of the profits of the sale of these chocolate bars go to help endangered species. So there are many reasons to feel good about indulging in this bar. Or rather, HALF of this bar at a time... RIGHT????? Superfood content helps to take the antioxident power of the 70% cacao ethically traded … [Read more...] about Endangered Species Chocolate – Organic Health Dark Chocolate with Goji Berries, Pecans and Maca
Don't think for a second when you open this chocolate bar that you're in for an ordinary experience. I opened the wrapper and was greeted with a VERY unfamilar smell... I smelled... PEPPER before I smelled dark chocolate. It was even ever so slightly off putting. It gave me pause... yes me - your intrepid food explorer! But I tasted it and WOW! This is a super unique and … [Read more...] about NewTree Pink Peppercorn Sexy 73 Percent Cocoa Belgian Chocolate Bar
Beyond Organic chocolate bars - glad I got a photo of 2 of them together - they disappear so quickly that this is a somewhat rare photo. They come in small boxes of 12, which might sound like a lot to you - this is an illusion. Each bar is 1.2oz or 35g which is both a blessing and a curse - on one hand, if you are a very good friend, you can snap one in half and there's a … [Read more...] about Beyond Organic Fine Italian Chocolate with Probiotics and Omega 3s
I love these. They have a delicious complex flavor and texture that is just fantastic for workshop weekends or times of increased activity. While I'm not a huge fan of grains, one of my old favorites is buckwheat and the main ingredient of these bars just happens to be sprouted organic buckwheat. Again, these are a rare treat in that they are expensive ($4-$6/bar depending … [Read more...] about Pashen Raw Food Snack Bars – Original and Cacao

My second recent trip to the greater Boston area included a second trip to the Taza chocolate factory. This incredible and delicious chocolate has a very unique almost "grainy" texture due to the fact that it is stone ground in a very interesting traditional Mexican way. The factory itself is housed in an old school warehouse in a fairly industrial area of Somerville. We … [Read more...] about Taza Chocolate Mexicano Chipotle Chocolate Discs Organic 70% Cacao
Coco Polo, Stevia Sweetened 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate with Whole Dry-Roasted Almonds, Non-GMO, No Sugar Added, 2.82-Ounce Bar Found this at a local gourmet market which caters to an upscale crowd.
