Alter Eco
Dark Cacao Organic Chocolate bar
Good +  - Very Good
Weight: .564 oz. (16 g.) / 2.82 oz. (80 g.) total bar

Alter Eco's Dark Cacao (63% cocoa) bar with cacao nibs tasted like a rich cup of coffee -- smooth with light acidic and roasted notes and a bittersweet bite -- with the added textural dimension of crunchy cocoa nibs.

Information on the farmers/partners and the cacao bean origins (Fortaleza and Acopagro Co-op, and the coast of Ecuador) for this dark, organically grown and fairly traded chocolate is printed on the back and inside of the bar package. Alter Eco bars typically contain a short list of quality ingredients (5 in this bar), with no emulsifiers or artificial ingredients; this bar was free of soy or gluten ingredients and was GMO-free and vegan. Alter Eco is an international company, with a base in San Francisco, CA.

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Nibs Theme Week.
