Yes, it is time for yet another dark chocolate review. And yes, I bought this from iHerb, as usual. Their shipping prices are definitely more reasonable than the other online stores. They have this 95% off DHL prices if you order more than US$60. Not too shabby. It arrives from the United States in less than a week. Well if it is the holidays, there might be some delay here and there but DHL is quite fast. Definitely better than the previous one iHerb offered. Anyway if you like dark chocolate, I think you will love this. The problem with dark chocolate is that it is often just too bitter. And in Singapore, we are so used to milk chocolate that most of us find dark chocolate a little like eating coffee or something. I guess it can be an acquired taste. Not that I have good tastes but after a while, I have no problems eating dark chocolate. And the cocoa content does affect how bitter the chocolate is going to be.
Oh by the way, dark chocolate is healthier than milk chocolate. One of the main reason is the cocoa content. Since cocoa is packed full of nutrients, dark chocolate with more cocoa content would give you more nutrients than milk content. Furthermore, there is usually less sugar in dark chocolate.
Wow, comes with forest mint. The advantage of buying individual chocolate squares is that you don’t have to finish the entire chocolate in one sitting. If you purchased them chocolate bars, it is a hassle to “pack” the chocolate if you cannot finish it. The mint flavour is pretty good here. At least you can taste the mint on your tongue. Most mint chocolates are pretty weak in the mint department.
About 100g of chocolate.
The back of the pack.
Cool, they donate 10% of net profits to organizations that support species conservation, habitat preservation and humanitarian efforts. So why not support them?
The ingredients are bittersweet chocolate and natural mint flavour. Wow, that is one short ingredients list. Of course they do need to make the actual chocolate which also has a very short ingredients list. That is what food is all about. Not chemicals or whatever crap fillers they have. If you were to check the ingredients of many of the chocolates we have in our local supermarkets, you would have probably thought that you were eating something else. Don’t believe me, just go to the supermarket and see for yourself.
Some nutritional information. Hmm…..seems to have quite a lot of fiber. Yes, I too don’t know how that goes but hey, if it is true, you might have a better time at the toilet after eating the chocolate. Get it? The chocolate is black and so is your…..okay, never mind.
