Intensely flavorful chocolate, timely delivery. I'm a repeat customer. Wesley on 16th Apr 2017
Santa Barbara 100% Dark Unsweetened Chocolate it is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet plus 5 star customer service. Bill B. on 11th Mar 2017
I am very happy with the Santa Barbara customer service and that my order was delivered in a timely manner and in excellent condition. I didn't expect the cocao to be so bitter. Regardless I think it's a high quality product and it can go in a smoothie with some fruit. Not sure that I'll be ordering that particular product again. Please take my taste into account when reading my review. Alan Simberg on 25th Feb 2017
We use the organic unsweetened chocolate in our ice cream products and it is amazing. Great quality and came to us quick and easy. Rachel F. on 15th Feb 2017
I searched high and low to find this. I wanted 100% unsweetened cacao to put in my smoothie to detox. It is yummie! virginia b. on 24th Jan 2017
I use 5 or 6 pieces every morning. It is an acquired taste, but the feeling later on is difficult to describe. I feel full of energy which is completely under my control and I can channel it in any direction I like. Needless to say, I love the product and have been using it for quite a while. Miro G. on 24th Jan 2017
Smooth and creamy, love the new bags, so easy to use and store. Just wish they came in extra small chips. Love to make chocolate chip cookies with this but hate to chop. Deanna B. on 21st Jan 2017
Thanks Jason, Your Chocolate made it on time. I appreciate your attention to detail with my order. The chocolate sent is delightful. scott w. on 21st Jan 2017
The 100% Pure Cacao Organic Dark Unsweetened Chocolate is a very consistent, delicious, high quality baking chocolate that I'll continue purchasing for my bakery. Thank you Santa Barbara Chocolate for providing such a great product! Carren D. on 20th Jan 2017
Well, honestly I don’t know where to start. I love milk chocolate, creamy, light, but I turned vegan. Since then I am trying different dark chocolates, artisan chocolate bars and so far they all tasted really ‘rough’. I am no chocolate aficionado (yet), but I felt I have to cut out chocolate altogether. Then I found SB chocolate, and they even offer chocolate without soy, sugar, I was in heaven. When I got the chocolate I was completely perplexed by the taste. It has so many different notes to it, it is crazy! Especially the ‘flowery’ notes surprised me, and I am not sure but there was also some earthiness, also almost a tad coffee flavor. And it cycles through these flavors, one after the other. Really amazing. I am so glad I found this company, they are totally in sync with my values. Next I want to try the organic chocolate with the organic sugar. I really am hooked! www.instagram.com/elkeweissfoto/ W. on 20th Jan 2017
This is a fabulous product! Nothing but cacao and great taste and mouth feel. I was especially impressed with the care with which it was packed and shipped. Thank you! Kathy L. on 20th Jan 2017
I've purchased the 3 pound bag of pure 100% organic unsweetened Amazonas chocolate several times in the past, and when I run out, I buy another bag. That in itself should tell you I love this stuff. You can not compare this chocolate to the stuff you find in the grocery store for price or quality. Lee S. on 20th Jan 2017
I love Santa Barbara Chocolate! It is the best and healthiest dark chocolate I have ever had, and I have been buying dark chocolate for a long time. The packaging is great too. Kim E. on 20th Jan 2017
But they had what I was looking for - good quality, 100% dark chocolate discs. Yeah! Liza S. on 20th Jan 2017
Due to health issues, I'm not supposed to eat sugar. But I LOVE chocolate! Also, all sugar substitutes other than Stevia throw my stomach off. There are several store brands of chocolate that are made with Stevia, but they contain Inulin (a prebiotic that also throws my stomach off). Solution: I order the unsweetened chocolate from Santa Barbara Chocolate, mix in with organic cocoa butter, vanilla extract, ghee, coconut butter, 100% pure Stevia (free of additives), and my favorite essential oil (orange, lavender or peppermint), and voila! I'm in love... Anna P. on 19th Jan 2017
Delivered in 1 day, I ordered it on Friday, and it was on my doorstep on Saturday. I was wowed by that since we live in an area that always requires extra time. The chocolate was perfect and rich. I'm ready for more! Darlene B. on 19th Jan 2017
I am a diabetic, so I avoid sugar. Over the years, I developed a taste for real chocolate without any sugar added. And not any dark chocolate. What worked best for me was small chips. I was running out of my previous supply and had always found them hard to find at a reasonable price. Many offered "low sugar" semi-sweet chips. Few offered sugarless chips. Now I have found the place to go for what I want. I found them at Santa Barbara Chocolate. https://www.santabarbarachocolate.com/100-pure-cacao-organic-dark-unsweetened-chocolate/ I just bought 22 more pounds, having tried three pounds as a test. They suit me to a TEE. Now I'm good for several years. Be advised: these chips have ZERO sugar. They are NOT sweet, but they are very chocolaty. Most people might use them to frost cakes and cupcakes. Marvin G. on 19th Jan 2017
it's delivered on time. good quality and fast delivery. satisfied. shinkwang h. on 19th Jan 2017
I used this chocolate to filled truffles and it tempered perfectly Jessie K. on 19th Jan 2017
I think this chocolate is the best you can find anywhere. I thought I'm gonna make my own chocolate bars from this 100% cacao chocolate. But now I eat it just like that. Sometimes with a few rains. It's perfect. Alexander R. on 19th Jan 2017
