Chocolove 77%

January 1, 2012

It’s been a while since I ate some really good chocolate. Chocolove was on sale at Whole Foods several weeks ago, and curious about all the internet hype, I bought the company’s highest cacao percentage bar: 77%. I didn’t try it until two weeks ago.

To be honest, I don’t remember the taste of the bar very well. I just remember that the flavor was pretty boring, and that the bar seemed pretty average. The overall flavor didn’t lean much towards acidity, fruitiness, earthiness, woodiness, etc., which ultimately resulted in a blend of South American and African cacao at a middle ground that was just boring.

On top of the not very impressive taste, the bar itself was difficult to separate into the square parts. It could be my fault for the frigid cold of my winter room temperature, but at the same time, I could easily separate Ghirardelli baking bar squares at the same temperature.

Nutritionals for the entire bar includes 510 calories: 39g fat, 33g carbs, 9g fiber, 9g protein, 3% Vitamin A, 3% Vitamin C, 9% calcium, and 30% iron. Ingredients were nicely simple, with cocoa liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, and soy lecithin.

Didn’t think this bar was worth it, even at the $2 sale price. But that is just my personal preference.

I am announcing now that I will be taking a break from all chocolate reviews until further notice. I am testing to see if I have high sensitivities to chocolate in terms of toxin storage/digestion of phytic acid, theobromine addictions, and sugar dependence, so I will be avoiding anything containing chocolate or cacao. May the test begin…
