High quality, Very good flavor, Great price per pound (50 lb box).
I work with a lot of chocolate, and I was super impressed both by the quality of this product and the way it was packaged for shipment! I'm really excited to work with this chocolate. My only complaint is that I wish this was labeled with cocoa butter content of the cacao liquor (which tends to be around 50-60%), which would make working with it easier for me.
I use these in recipes for my own use. They result in a rich flavor and smooth texture. Even though they are unsweetened, their flavor is so wonderful that minimal sweetener is necessary. I have tried other cacaos with a less tasty result.
I can't believe this chocolate is SO delicious, yet unsweetened! I have been trying to accustom myself to unsweetened chocolate (to cut down on sugar in my diet) but could not find any I could enjoy--everything was too bitter, and even 90% Lindt was not terribly appealing. This is the first 100% I can eat, and eat with gusto! I could hardly believe it's unsweetened...there is no bitterness, just smooth, dark, chocolately goodness. Thank you SBCC!!! Please keep stocking this!
It's not easy to find responsibly-sourced dark chocolate in bulk. That's the primary reason I buy this. I eat it straight-up, mixed with some Organic Dark Chocolate 72% - ratio of 4 (100%) to 1 (72%). Good stuff.
Good Stuff! Great for a evening snack right outta the bag. In fact, when I am not using it in candy this is exactly what I do with it!! Keeps my cholesterol low and happy. None too pleased when I run out. LOL
Makes really great homemade candy. I buy it mostly for my chocolate fix. Hahaha. That's why you will find me with this chocolate around!
I love unsweetened chocolate; it's generally the only kind I buy for snacking on. This is truly one of the best I've encountered. Smooth, creamy, and the bitter notes are subtle and nutty. A bonus is no additives of any kind.
The only reason for a knock of one star is the size. I wish they were 5-gram medallions or squares as opposed to these 1-gram pieces. If I was melting them down or using in baking, no big deal. But I mainly use them as is for dessert. Also, a 5-lb or 7-lb bag would be awesome.
Very melt in your mouth texture and very little bitter taste for pure unsweetened chocolate!
This is a great pure chocolate. a little fruit on the back end works great for tempering.
I've purchased bulk unsweetened chocolate from other companies. By comparison, Santa Barbara's has such a smooth texture and an almost buttery/nutty finish. It was a pleasant surprise.
I never knew love like this before! Flavor, Texture, Melting,etc.,etc.,etc.,
nuff said, just buy it!
Great flavor and texture.
I have been purchasing chocolate for baking from Santa Barbara for years now. I consider it the best and use nothing else. I have lost count of all the times my baked goods have been breathlessly exclaimed about due to this chocolate!
I really like the medallions - they are perfect for cooking (no chopping from blocks!) and, of course, I really appreciate that nothing else is added.
The best of the best, so pure and very strong... I like it very much..!!
I use these chocolate medallions to make my own 100% dark chocolate concoction because I don't want refined sugar or other "strange" ingredients in my chocolate. I simply gently melt them in a sauce pan and add raw honey, or agave to taste, a little cinnamon, and sometimes put in some coconut oil and/or organic hulled hemp seeds. Mix it all up, put it in a pyrex dish and then into the frig for it to harden. Break it up into pieces and voila! Delicious 100% dark chocolate!
The unsweetened chocolate was smooth and rich and made my brownies even better than they were before. I look forward to a long partnership with Santa Barbara Chocolate Company.
I have been buying this chocolate exclusively for years for all my baking needs. I constantly get compliments on it.
As the saying goes in cooking, "It's the ingredients, stupid!" Or something like that. ;-)
But seriously, if you are going to use chocolate in a recipe then this is the ingredient you want.
Jason...thank you so very much. You have gone above and beyond what you should have to do...great (make that outstanding) customer service. I'm sorry to have made so much trouble for you. I will always use your company for our chocolate needs. I am a diabetic and dark chocolate (100% cacao) seems to help me a lot both with the diabetes and my high blood pressure. Nice to know I now have a place to go to for quality chocolate.
I use this chocolate to blend with 60or 64% to create a 72%
I have been using the Ecuadoran 100% but think this is even
creamier. Very good texture and flavor
