These days it seems like there is a new craft chocolate producer popping up every day. Many of them have a schtick that appeals to our inner ironic mustache. Hipster, packaging and vibes all around. These days most of them even preserve enough of the phenolic flavors in the beans to make the bars actually taste like they came from plants vs. the indistinguishable vanilla flavored candy approach to dark chocolate so often favored in Europe. Unfortunately, most of it tastes like a moldy old apothecary gone rotten.
In true brash hipster American style Dick Taylor’s bars blast you with blaring flavors from start to finish. However, the flavors stay clean and pure through all their length. If Amedei is a chocolate symphony, Dick Taylor is chocolate’s Led Zeppelin. They are among a handful of American greats with a style all their own.
Notes of berries, citrus classically characteristic from Madagascar’s Sambirano Valley, a classic from one of America’s newest craft chocolate producers.
Think tangy, bright juicy fruits like cherries, raspberries, and citrus.
