Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Fig Theme Week.

jcoco* (affiliated with Seattle Chocolate Company, Seattle, WA) produces what they call couture chocolate.

A purple covering enveloped three smaller black fig pistachio dark bars that were wrapped in copper foil and outer wrappers adorned with black and white fashion photographs.

The question is, did the chocolate deliver? Happily, the answer was yes. Non-GMO, vegan and gluten-free, this set of 3 dark chocolate black fig pistachio bars had an unexpectedly buttery taste and mouth feel, and a generous helping of crunchy, green roasted pistachio nuts (from California).

jcoco is also interested in giving back. "With each bar, we provide a serving of fresh food to someone in need."

*jcoco owner, and creator of this line of bars, is Seattle Chocolates CEO Jean Thompson.
