This Organic Raspberry Rooibos Dark Chocolate features our 60% dark cacao deliciously infused with our raspberry rooibos tea. The resulting combination of perfectly balanced sweetness with the richness of the dark cocoa forge a flavor experience that is nothing short of divine. When indulging in the bar, the first characteristic to dominate is the aromatic quality of the rooibos tea. This smooth herbal scent fills your nostrils, conjuring stomach ideas of the flavor soon to come. The bitterness of the chocolate then takes the taste bud scene, followed quickly by the mild-fruitiness of the raspberries. As the chocolate delicately melts, all of these flavor characteristics seamlessly meld together; creating the type of edible experience that will leave you in a chocolate-filled daydream.
Handcrafted by our master chocolatier using only the finest organic cocoa beans, our chocolates strive to exceed the highest expectations in both quality and taste. We believe that the genuine flavor of the cocoa is what’s important, so we keep our ingredients simple: a rich blend of unsweetened chocolate and cocoa fat, a touch of sweetness from pure organic cane sugar, and—in the case of our milk chocolates—whole milk to create a silky mouth feel. These simple ingredients are then delicately infused with our own spices and herbs to create a uniquely irresistible taste. The resulting melt-in-your-mouth creations boast the perfect gourmet texture, a rich taste of cocoa, and a variety of complex flavor profiles that promise to satisfy both dedicated connoisseurs and periodic indulgers.
Chocolate, as we know it, is derived from the fatty seeds of the cocoa tree, native to Central and South America. Traditionally made into a bitter drink and celebrated by the Aztecs for its rich taste and medicinal properties, these seeds have played a role in Latin American cultures for thousands of years—with its name literally translating to “food of the gods”. Around 1500AD, European explorers began transporting cocoa beans back to Europe, where they soon took hold amongst the upper class. Over the years, the supplies and popularity of this divine fruit continued to increase, allowing it to spread its powerfully-delicious reach to almost every corner of the world.
The many health benefits that have now become associated with cocoa are due to its abundant load of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants—with studies linking moderate cocoa consumption to a variety of benefits, ranging from increasing cardiovascular health to helping control blood pressure.
The bitter sweetness of the dark cocoa allow this bar to beautifully compliment the traditional accompaniments, such as a strong cup of coffee or tall glass of chilled milk -but don't limit yourself to the norm! Thanks to the tender fruity notes and sharp herbal aroma of the raspberry rooibos infusion, the bar is opened up to a myriad of potential pairings.
