This is how Chocolate is supposed to taste, I am starting to learn how to make candy and eventually start a candy company and this will be my only chocolate supplier I will use. I wanted to make candy for a long time because the stuff on the shelfs is either really really healthy which is okay but not tasty or its cut with wax and other fillers, this stuff, this is the real stuff.
Probably the best hot chocolate I have ever made and enjoyed at home has been possible with these flavor-packed little couverture discs! If you eat a handful of these, letting some of them melt, you taste that fruity sweetness -- it's really something else! And now that I mostly work remotely these days, I want to add some variety to my meals/drinks. That's really kept things interesting, and it's got me curious about their other dark couvertures. Plus, I really respect that the owners have strong relationships with the farmers. Please don't run out of these :)
