Serious chocolate fiends take note. We tasted an interesting, delightful bar recently. Made by Theo Chocolate in Seattle, we flipped for the Coconut Curry bar, a combination of milk chocolate, toasted coconut and savory curry spices. What is unique about Theo is that they manufacture their products from bean to bar ? sourcing, roasting, refining, blending and finally molding. Additionally, they are dedicated to social and environmental responsibility and are Fair Trade Certified. Because the company sources its beans, they offer a line of origin bars offering a taste of terroir as in wine or coffee. We also liked the delicate crunch of the Nib Brittle Dark Chocolate bar. www.theochocolate.com.
