Caveat: I have not yet tried all items in my sample pack. Generally here are my observations:
The chocolates are packaged beautifully. One line of the chocolate bars had a canvas exterior; one had a recycled paper exterior; the others had a durable plastic covering.
Note: the Sea Salt with Turmeric flavor in the plastic tear-off package was incorrectly labeled as 1.8oz, when all the other bars in the same package were only 1.0 oz.
I was disappointed by the size of the bars - 4 of them were only 1oz of product and the others were 1.8oz.
I felt that the flavors were too subtle to be recognizable.
I felt that the chocolate bar textures were unappealingly chalky....once I began chewing the chocolate as it melted in my mouth, it became this gritty, separated mass - not smooth and silky. It seemed like there was too much cacao butter.
I am used to eating 85%+ chocolate, and being that these bars are all in the 70-75% range, I was disappointed by the flavor and textures (which should have been smoother and less bitter than I'm used to).
I have not yet tried the nibs or the drinking chocolate, so I cannot provide feedback on those items.
The branding and packaging is beautifully done, I love that local honey is used, and believe it is wonderful that such a large percentage of the profits are donated. That being said, the quantity of product and the flavor did not meet my expectations. Even at the 50% discounted rate, this was $1 more per item then I would otherwise be looking to spend for a product that consisted of min 25% more product. Based on what I have tried so far I would not recommend this product to those looking for a rich, silky dark chocolate treat, and the price point is not appealing for repeat customers.
Can I please have more!! They are all very yummy and I LOVE that they are dairy free!!!
While I can not say I have taste all (because my family enjoyed half before me). What I did enjoy was the rich deep chocolate flavor, with added flavor ingancing ingredients! I love the 72% coco and low sugar combination for better flavor. (Echoed by the family!) I would definately recommend to a friend and/ or send as a gift.
I received 11 different bars and have sampled about half of them...they are all fantastic! I love that there is so much thought, love and high quality ingredients that go into this chocolate. I will be giving as gifts soon!
I read the reviews before purchasing, but still was surprised at how tasty these bars are. I haven't come close to trying them all, but everything I have tried so far has been divine.
