The chocolate bars I list here are eaten out of pleasure. Yes, some carry healthy benefits while others do not. I’m not noting all the characteristics of each bar. Only what I receive in flavor. Some are Non- GMO while others well, are full fledged unhealthy. But all are dark chocolate! I do list by my own ranking.
Endangered Species 72% Dark (West Africa) – on a regular basis, I have my go to chocolate bar. In the evening, I like to nibble on this. It’s not sweet, but flavorful, not bitter, but smooth.
Green and Black’s Organic Dark 70% (Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Indonesia, the Dominican Republic, India and Brazil) – this is slightly sweeter than the Endangered Species and the break off squares are nice and thick. One square usually satisfies. Rich tasting.
Lily’s Dark Chocolate with Stevia Original – I really wasn’t sure how I was going to like this one. The Stevia was making me think it was going to have a weird aftertaste. But it doesn’t! I liked the flavor so much that I have used the baking chips for cookies and they come out great!
Teuscher Dark 77% (Switzerland) – Can’t find this in Arizona. I can either order or wait until I fly to New York and take a trip to their fabulous store at Rockefeller center. This chocolate hits all the notes.
Perugina Bitterswseet Chocolate 70% (Italy) – This taste like chocolate cake. More sugar in it but one square does you good. Perugina makes Baci, another chocolate treat. One that I find too sweet, so when I came across this I had reservation and yet it’s fantastic!
Nibble Organic Dark 72% (Peru) – Two ingredients only. If you are not into bitter, this isn’t for you. But I found its deep chocolate taste yummy. It’s not a chocolate bar you can easily find. I found it in Old Town San Diego at a coffee bar. It is pricy, but the break squares are chunky.
Stonegrindz Chocolate Cinnamon Cayenne 66% (unknown) – This chocolate company is based out of Scottsdale, AZ. I found them at a Chocolate Fair. I’m not much into these added flavored chocolates such as this, but this one changed my mind. I couldn’t find where they source their chocolate, but appreciate their otherwise informative website.
