Brand: barkTHINS Flavor: Dark Chocolate Coconut with Almonds Price: $3.49 Rating: 4/5, Liked it a lot Merry Christmas, everyone. I got you this review of Dark Chocolate Coconut barkTHINS with Almonds. So, I’ve concluded that barkTHINS are the Pringles of fair-trade chocolate, because when I open a bag, it’s all I can do to keep […]
Do you like fair-trade chocolate, but find it pricey? Do you have trouble rationing out an entire bar and end up eating it all at once? barkTHINS may be able to help! Then again, they may not, because as I sit here typing this, I’m eating them straight from the bag.
Vosges knows how to make a good chocolate. If they can make me, a not-especially-caramel guy, say to himself, “Man, that’s some good caramel,” they’ve got to be doing something right. Their dulce de leche bar here has a firm outside and gooey caramel center, providing a tasty texture change-up. There’s a bit of a dark, salty bite to it, but more than anything it’s just a sweet, milky bar. It’s enjoyable, luxurious, and it goes down easy.
There’s a story behind this bar. Awhile ago, I swung by Kroger with my Plan X Media partner-in-ministry, Ash Green, to restock my chocolate supply. The standard price for the Vosges caramel bar you see above was $5.49, and while I like caramel well enough, I prefer straight-up dark chocolate, so I normally wouldn’t have given it a second thought. But, as Ash pointed out, the bar was on sale for $2.79, an absolutely crazy markdown. He talked me into grabbing the Vosges bar on sale, and I’m glad he did. This is the good stuff.
Look, I’m not going to tell you how to live your life. But given a choice between drinking my coffee and eating it, I’m taking my caffeine via chocolate bar every time. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to get your coffee fix than Chocolove’s Dark Chocolate Coffee Crunch.
