Chocolate is a Lot Like People

18th Dec 2013

Last night while enjoying some of our organic chocolate, I realized that chocolate has a personality just like people. What I mean by this is, have you ever met an individual that you just didn't care for initially, but once you got to know them and their intricacies you found that this individual is actually a great person - maybe even a best friend? I have had this experience myself both with people and chocolate.

When I first tried the Hispaniola Rainforest 72% Organic Dark Chocolate, I didn't know what to think: complex with strong flavor notes of fruit, bitterness and acidity. The flavor is truly grand and not modest in any way. My first reaction was that this chocolate has too many flavors with too big of a personality. Later on when I actually took the time to relax, slow down and just enjoy a piece of chocolate, I realized how brilliant of a chocolate this was. The flavors unveil themselves in a complex array much like an individual might slowly unveil their own personality. The layers of complexity of this chocolate are truly remarkable - much like an individual.

So, I recommend trying one of our organic chocolate and sharing it with someone you'd like to know better. It will be worthwhile time spent - even if it is only the chocolate you end up liking.
