Who has not heard of the actor Paul Newman? Anyone reading this not heard of this? Before his passing away in September 2008, he had more than 80 credits as an actor but also worked as a writer, director and producer plus over 30 awards as testament to his skill. But he and his daughter also started a food company called Newman's Own which specialized in organic foods and donations to charity at the beginning of this movement to be natural and give back to the community. Your Chocolate Priestess bought this 54% dark chocolate bar at our local Kroger's a while back when it was on deep sale. Today I want to review it for you all.
Rainforest Alliance Certified" cocoa. Additional ingredients does include soy lecithin, can juice and vanilla but no dairy so I believe this is also then vegan. It has a strong, bitter cocoa taste countered by the vanilla but not creamy in the slightest. It melts slowly in my mouth and provides a slight buzz after one section.
An excellent chocolate bar which goes beyond my expectations for whatI find in grocery stores and mass retailers. Now, it is a bit pricey but some times with chocolate price does equal quality. Look for it on sale, check out their website for coupon, or simply know that some of that money will go to charities but do try this once.
Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
