YUM!!! I have discovered some delicious dark chocolate from a company called Chuao Chocolatier. Chuao (pronounced chew--WOW) Chocolatier was founded by 2 Venezuelan-born brothers now residents of San Diego, CA, who named their company after the legendary cacao-producing region of central Venezuela and are creating high-quality "fusion" chocolates that tempt our taste buds, through a commitment to create unusual, unexpected and delicious flavors using their secret blend of premium chocolate and fresh natural ingredients. If you are a chocolate lover--you need to check them out!
I was given 3 varieties of their dark chocolate varieties to test out. I love dark chocolate so I was super excite to try them out. Today, my 4 year old and I sampled a bit of 3 different bars and we loved them all--my 4 year old kept asking for more! This is some of the best chocolate that I have ever tasted! The 3 varieties I tried are:
- Honeycomb--60% Cacao--Dark Chocolate bar with carmalized honey--sweet and crunch (my 4 year old's favorite)
- Panko--60% Cacao--Dark Chocolate bar with Toasted Panko Breadcrumbs and Sea Salt--sweet and salty with a bit of crunch (my favorite--sort of reminded me of a dark chocolate cover pretzel only better)
- Firecracker--60% Cacao--Dark Chocolate bar with chipotle, salt and popping candy--sweet, spicy and fun (my husband's favorite for the spice, we all enjoyed the fun popping occurring in our mouths) a very aptly named bar
Along with the bars, which include Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate versions with a variety of "fusions" including spices, nuts and more--including their newest edition of milk chocolate with potato chips (which I bet is awesome), their line of chocolate also includes:
They also have a section that helps you perfectly pair the chocolate with your favorite scotch, if you desire.
Chuao Chocolatier products can be found in a few retailers nationwide--including Whole Foods Market and Crate & Barrel or they can be purchased from the Chuao Chocolatier online store -- you may need overnight shipping due to the warm weather right now, but it really is some great chocolate! Their chocolate is so creative that it would make a fantastic gift for any chocolate lover! Be a little daring--try something new--and if you like a bit of zip in your life try their Firecracker with your family and friends--it is sure to be a hit at your next get together!
Thank you to Chuao Chocolatier for my samples used in this review, opinions are honest review by Michelle.
