This Organic Turmeric Coriander Dark Chocolate boasts a deliciously complex flavor profile featuring the bitter sweetness of our robust 60% cacao dark chocolate, the warmth of toasted coriander, and the earthy aromatic qualities of turmeric root. This novel combination of scents and flavors allows this bar to take you on an edible adventure that will immerse your senses in both the traditional richness of dark chocolate and the unorthodox aromas and spiced flavors that we pride ourselves on. Once you take your first bite of this bar, you will no exactly what we mean by this. As the bar melts in your mouth your taste buds will first ride the wave of richly bittersweet cocoa, soon merged with the nutty notes and warming sensation of toasted coriander, and finally dominated by the earthy flavor and pungent-citrus aroma of fresh turmeric. The blend is finished off with a touch of pure vanilla, to act as a sort of middleman, melding each flavor together and providing a delicately sweet finale to a bar that is nothing short of chocolate-nirvana.
Handcrafted by our master chocolatier using only the finest organic cocoa beans, our chocolates strive to exceed the highest expectations in both quality and taste. We believe that the genuine flavor of the cocoa is what’s important, so we keep our ingredients simple: a rich blend of unsweetened chocolate and cocoa fat, a touch of sweetness from pure organic cane sugar, and—in the case of our milk chocolates—whole milk to create a silky mouth feel. These simple ingredients are then delicately infused with our own spices and herbs to create a uniquely irresistible taste. The resulting melt-in-your-mouth creations boast the perfect gourmet texture, a rich taste of cocoa, and a variety of complex flavor profiles that promise to satisfy both dedicated connoisseurs and periodic indulgers.
Chocolate, as we know it, is derived from the fatty seeds of the cocoa tree, native to Central and South America. Traditionally made into a bitter drink and celebrated by the Aztecs for its rich taste and medicinal properties, these seeds have played a role in Latin American cultures for thousands of years—with its name literally translating to “food of the gods”. Around 1500AD, European explorers began transporting cocoa beans back to Europe, where they soon took hold amongst the upper class. Over the years, the supplies and popularity of this divine fruit continued to increase, allowing it to spread its powerfully-delicious reach to almost every corner of the world.
The many health benefits that have now become associated with cocoa are due to its abundant load of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants—with studies linking moderate cocoa consumption to a variety of benefits, ranging from increasing cardiovascular health to helping control blood pressure.
Despite the complexity of the bar, the dominating flavors can really be broken down into two categories: bitter and sweet. The sweetness comes from the dark cocoa’s touch of pure cane sugar, the slight nutty-fruitiness provided by the coriander, and the touch of pure vanilla. The bitter notes of the bar come from the bold richness of the 60% cocoa content and the earthy pungent properties of the turmeric. Pairing this chocolate in ways that compliments both of these categories can be a bit tricky, but then again, it is chocolate… so it’s fairly easy to find some sort of mouth-watering combination. Try accentuating the bars natural flavors by just altering the mouth feel and texture –such as noshing the bar with a handful of roasted nuts or kettle-cooked potato chips. Another route is to capitalize on the traditional uses of turmeric and coriander by pairing with the spiciness of peppers –roasted jalapenos are a good option. The bar’s sweetness, though subtle on it’s own, can also be easily amplified by enjoying the bar along side your favorite dried fruits or, if you’re really looking to impress your friends (or even your own taste buds), whip some soft cheese with honey! The fragrant sweetness of the honey will make the bars natural sweetness sing, while the buttery mouth feel of the cheese acts as a vehicle to carry the flavors –yes, it’s as good as it sounds!
