Every once in a while, I'm asked to do a review. Sometimes I say yes. Sometimes I say no. It often requires lots of thought.
A few weeks ago, I was asked to review Pure Dark chocolates. This time I didn't think...I just said yes. Boy, I'm glad I did. :-)
I had never heard of Pure Dark before, but I'm totally impressed. The chocolates are made as purely as possible, harvested straight from nature. Everything is made in small batches to ensure the utmost quality. Even the packaging demonstrates their commitment to nature!
I received a slab of 70% dark chocolate...and it was really a slab!
I put this in a batch of brownies (click here for brownie recipe), and it was amazing...subtly dark and yet deliciously rich.
We tried the other sample just by itself - dark chocolate bark with almonds, cherries, and caramelized nibs. It was delicious! The chocolate was nice and smooth, and the textures just added that extra something special. I really loved the salty nibs in contrast to the sweetness of the dark chocolate. It was a perfect snack.
Look for this in stores. If you see it, definitely give it a try. It would be perfect in your next recipe or as a fun element to your next wine tasting party. You can't go wrong with dark chocolate!
P.S. Obviously it would be hard to give a bad review of chocolate (can it be done?), but I promise that these opinions were honestly my own! Pure Dark did send me the chocolate to try, but I speak the truth when I say I loved it.
