The Best Vegan Chocolate Bar

If you are a chocolate lover you are going to want to try this vegan chocolate bar from TCHO! It is a wonderful dark chocolate bar and ironically I don’t usually go for dark chocolate. I find it bitter and I don’t like the taste of most of the dark chocolates I have tried in the past. Nutritional experts tell us we should include some dark chocolate in our diet as it contains antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients. Still, in spite of really trying, I’ve just never gotten into it. I have tried other vegan chocolate bar brands and I do like some, but not enough to buy again much less recommend….until now!

TCHO almond and sea salt vegan chocolate barThe best vegan chocolate bar

First, TCHO has not paid me for this review nor has the company sent me anything. (although I wish they would! haha) I’m sharing with you this vegan chocolate discovery in hopes you’ll try this brand. This particular bar contains almonds and sea salt. Yummmm… I found it by accident while shopping at Whole Foods one day. An employee at the store saw me pick it up and examine the ingredients, then asked me if I had ever tried it. I said no and he replied “You’ve got to get it. It’s really delicious!!” Now, I’m sure many Whole Foods employees have seen me pick up many items but none have gone out of their way to tell me I really should try something. So I took his recommendation and brought it home, and now I have to say I agree with him!

What makes this bar better?

This vegan chocolate bar is really delicious! It is sweet and a little salty but most important for me– it’s smooth. Now it still does have some of that bitterness that dark chocolate has—it is dark chocolate after all. But, it doesn’t taste as bitter as almost every other dark chocolate I’ve tried. The mild sweetness of the almonds and the sea salt really balance out the flavors. But I think the best part about this bar is that it’s made with organic chocolate. It’s also fair trade certified. Those are important things to me and I know if you’re vegan, eco-conscious and “socially aware” then you will appreciate those things too.

If you’re looking for an organic dark chocolate bar that is vegan, fair trade and delicious, I definitely recommend trying this out. I looked on Amazon to see if it is sold on there and this bar is offered in a bulk pack of 12 which will cost about $52 and some change. Since that is a big chunk of change and you’re not likely to buy that quantity (but I’m not judging if you do!) I thought this dark chocolate sampler from TCHO would be a great introduction to the brand.
