Chocolate. Bread. Butter. Salt. The four food groups? Maybe not, but definitely four foods that make life worth living... in my humble opinion. Combine them all in one and you get the best chocolate bar I have tasted! Theo Chocolate's 3400 Phinney Bread and Chocolate... TA DA!
My sister's friend Meghan brought one of these over to my house when she came by to pick up my sister. Meghan works for Equal Exchange also and they have some damn tasty chocolate in their organic, fair trade line up. So when she said this was her fave bar and broke me off a big piece I knew I was in for a treat. Slightly bitter, exquisite dark chocolate with a hard to place crunch and a hit of salt... what is that??? Buttered bread crumbs made from French Baguette! Like an adult Nestle Crunch bar but 1000x better. She got her bars at Porter Sq. Books and they have the line at Whole Foods. I plan to buy several bars today. As you can see the one she left for me is long gone....
Thank you Theo Chocolates! Theo is located in Seattle, check them out on the web at.... http://www.theochocolate.com/
They are the first roaster of organic cacao in the U.S. They have their own blog too....
And last but not least, I met one of their folks at WF in Woburn and she was delightful. This is a cool company, check 'em out. If you are nice to me I might gift you with a bar!
