Theobroma Chocolat is a company that focuses on using recyclable and renewable materials whenever possible and support sustainable farming. They really try to balance the value they place on producing quality chocolate, while also thinking about our planet. I am also a fan of their product packaging design. Given the long-shape, it is easy to break into smaller pieces, but let’s be honest, I am not always willing to share.
The 72% dark bar is excellent on its own, with great smoothness and melts nicely in your mouth. The flavored bars start off with a foundation of 60% dark chocolate, which is great because I find that around this range, it doesn’t overwhelm the palette, but balances the taste of any additions, such as fruits or nuts. For the coconut chunks, there was great flavor and a bit of crunch from the specks of coconut with a slight chewiness. The raspberry chunks has a nice fruity taste, that turned out a bit better than what I had expected. And for a coffee kick, the espresso coffee chunks has a note of coffee, but it lack some vibrancy and freshness I wanted. I can’t say I was a fan of the banana chunks, but that may be because I am typically don’t go for bananas-flavored things, or the combination of chocolate and bananas either. But if you’re into it, try it. As for the orange chunks, it was also a citrus fruit and chocolate combination that I don’t always steer towards. Kind of reminds me of orange juice, really. And with a bit of crunch at the end.
