Tasting Notes: The medium roasted cacao in our Recipe 224 bar reveals subtle notes of blackcurrant, caramel, and vanilla. Days of stone grinding achieve a silky texture.  Next, the chocolate is heated, mixed and aerated, this is conching. Our medium conche step mellows each flavor note, creating a smooth blend reminiscent of caramel and milk chocolate with subtle hints of red fruit and plum. A small amount of added cocoa butter enhances the chocolate’s silky texture as it melts on your palate. Our unbleached, organic cane sugar makes this chocolate vegan friendly.
