In this chocolate, we’re highlighting the amazing flavor and aroma of high quality vanilla beans. Made with Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, this chocolate is rich, dark and creamy with a floral, buttery aroma. While we typically believe in letting the true flavor of the cacao shine through without the addition of vanilla, in this chocolate we're highlighting the amazing flavors of bourbon vanilla. We're using whole vanilla beans from Madagascar and combining them with our Mid Mountain Blend chocolate. If you're curious about the higher price point of this bar, it all has to do with the cost of vanilla. We're adding a relatively high amount of pure vanilla to this chocolate, and bourbon vanilla from Madagascar just so happens to be one of the most expensive ingredients in the world. Depending on the year, this type of vanilla can range from $200 to $400 per pound.

Ummmm...

First, for $12.00, this is an incredibly thin bar, less than 1/2 the thickness of most commercial candy bars.

Second, I cannot even taste the Vanilla. I use Madagascar Vanilla in many things in my kitchen, and the absence here is glaring in its obviousness.

Finally, and I understand that a 70% Cacao is Dark, it is bitter. I use Vanilla to smooth the sharpness of chocolate, and coffee, often, and this product tastes like baking chocolate.

The only positive I have for it is the lack of dairy in the mix.

I’ve been a long time customer and I order these by the case. I hope that the new plastic wrapper is only temporary, I’m not a fan of it.

This bar is hands down my absolute favorite confection ever created. It is smooth and dreamy tasting. It has a slight savory edge to it that perfectly combines with the sweetness of the chocolate.
