I know, what the heck is Cacao? To put it simply- Cacao Beans are what chocolate comes from. Let me get right to the point of this post – the sweetriot company works with farmers in Latin America through fair trade relationships (meaning farmers earn a decent income) in gathering healthy and organic ingredients for their chocolate bars.
What they produce are incredibly, incredibly rich pieces of candy in their new riot bars. Do read on – this is NOT like any Hershey bar you’ve ever had…
Coming in 60%, 70%, and 85% PURE cacao/chocolate varieties, you have to try them all to see where your taste-buds light up, and where they explode!
The packaging for the product is fun! The foil wrapping gives it that golden ticket feel, and the colorful outside makes it fun- but the wording on the label is pretty much in black and white- so you know what you are getting when you pick them up at the store.
It’s Darker than Dark Chocolate, let’s just say that. The pieces BREAK off,more like peanut brittle than a candy bar. The 60% bar has ‘crunchy nibs’ inside- which, are, well, I am not sure- but they are crunchy and taste like chocolate! Each square shown above is between 20 and 21 calories- so, you can strive for portion control, maybe.
Inside the wrapper you get a fun little surprise- to enjoy while you eat your wondrous piece of candy! And Don’t worry- even though I show my little Olivia in the picture, and even though she got to sample , don’t worry, I just gave her a small bite and saved the rest for me and the adults for later!
