Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Almond Theme Week.
Today's Primal Chocolate Almond Sea Salt dark chocolate (72% cacao) bar was made by Eating Evolved (Setauket, NY).
First, I feel I need to make a few personal disclosures:
I prefer chocolate bars with five (or fewer) ingredients.*
I like a bar that can convey balanced sweetness with less sugar.
I believe "salt," if added, should not eclipse other flavors.
I will buy almost any chocolate item with a monkey on it.
This 72% cacao, coconut sugar sweetened dark bar resonated with the preferences mentioned above. It had smooth, authentic chocolate flavor, without a sugar buzz. It was dairy free, soy free, paleo, vegan, and organic. And while there was no explicit claim of this bar being gluten free, there were no gluten-containing ingredients listed on the label.
And, having a monkey on both label and bar did not hurt either.
*Today's bar contained five ingredients: organic cacao, organic coconut sugar, organic cacao butter, organic almonds, and Himalayan sea salt.
