Chocolate Says It All which uses FDA approved food colorings without flavor to print messages and images on chocolate. They sent us this winter holiday sample that we'll look at today as well as a few birthday samples they have. Their chocolate smells like and looks like milk chocolate though the website doesn't give specific chocolate details that I could find. On top is a white coating, maybe sugar, that the printing is done on. Each of the individual printed pieces comes in a plastic case to hold it firmly so it didn't break in transit at all. No unnecessary packing materials were used for my samples and we appreciate that greatly because anything that could help the planet, the land, the water, and all aspects of the global environments can benefit the growth of cacao.
Chocolate Says It All is a fairly new company so I hope they take this review as not just honest but also helpful. I think if you got one of their more chocolate collection gifts where the printed pieces are only the center with a message surrounded by truffles then this could be a good gift. By itself, the printed pieces just do not taste as good as they could. If the coating could be much thinner this would allow more of the good milk chocolate to come through. I don't think even a very dark chocolate could compete well with the coating; that is the negative right now for these products.
