Our tour of Kroger’s Simple Truth chocolate continues with their maca dark chocolate bar. What is maca? It’s a plant from the Andes whose root can be powdered and used as an herbal supplement, and which is evidently great in chocolate.
As for the bar, it delivers tasty chocolate with a hint of fruitiness. It has an assertive, undiluted dark flavor, complemented by a touch of vanilla-sweet. The texture is pleasantly firm, dense, and snappy. On the whole, I’d say it’s a good value if you can get it for under $2.25, and I solidly prefer it to Simple Truth’s Marcona almond bar. Before I opened up this bar I had no idea what maca is, but if this is what maca tastes like, then color me a maca fan.
