Ok, so I will admit that there isn't much dark chocolate that I don't like. With that as my disclaimer, I must also say that there are some which I absolutely can't do without (remember, I'm one of those "have to have chocolate every day" kind of people!)! Our newest single-origin dark chocolate bar fits into that category. One of our chocolatiers, Askinosie Chocolates, has just come out with a bar made with beans from the Philippines. Turns out that the beans from Davao in the Philippines used to make this 77% dark chocolate bar come from the fist Filipino cocoa bean export in nearly 25 years. It's just one person's opinion, but I think this was worth waiting for! What I really like about it is that while it's got that great intense chocolate taste, it's not overly acidic. We opened a bar when it came in last week and everyone who tasted it wound up buying one! Ok, so maybe it's more than one person's opinion after all!

And what about the chocolates? The same principle applies here as we look for the best chocolates that we can find that you (hopefully) won't find anywhere else in town.
