Let me pass a note of well deserved praise onto Taza Chocolate out of the Bay State for they have achieved the impossible, crafting a Super Dark chocolate that even the Aztecs would have deemed gold. What makes Chocolate Mexicano different from the rest, you ask? Let me tell you. Mexican style as well as organic, direct trade and non-GMO, Taza’s distinct taste comes from two main ingredients; organic cacoa beans, organic cane sugar and also piquant traces of almonds, cashews, coconut, hazelnuts, and pecans, the wrapper tells me. It’s also free of soy, gluten, dairy, and cruelty.
Does it come in lighter blends? Yes. Is Super Dark still worth trying. Unequivocally, yes. Where can I pick up a bar of organic chocolate like this one? Anywhere remotely health conscious food is sold. Nothing else could have quenched my appetite in between surf lessons quite like a savoury 85% and deliciously dark stoneground disc of Taza… to all the other chocolate companies out there, up your game amigos!
