So, we’ve learned that Kroger’s Simple Truth Organic chocolate brand can do funky superfood-infused chocolate. But can they do straight-up no-frills dark chocolate? The answer is a resounding “technically, yes.”

Simple Truth’s standard dark chocolate bar is good chocolate. It’s got the brand’s signature snappy texture, with a firmness that melts on your tongue into something smooth. There’s a bit of vanilla there, but the bulk of the flavor is intense and dark with a sharp aftertaste. It’s strong and tasty, slightly sweet, but at the end of the day, it’s a harsher dark flavor than I prefer. Bitter chocolate aficionados will eat it up, but even if you like dark chocolate, you may want to consider a bar with more subtlety, like Endangered Species‘ or Green & Black’s darkest offerings.
