Grenada Chocolate Co. Organic Dark 60% Nib-a-licious


Pin It
If you asked any chocolate aficionado to name a chocolate maker from the Caribbean I'm sure that nine times out of ten they'll name the Grenada Chocolate Co. - not only because the company name is a give-away, but they're very good at marketing with the help of their UK partners, but also because they make very good chocolate indeed.
What I love about them is that on the one hand they'll offer you an intensely bitter dark chocolate bar in the form of their Grenada 100% and they'll offer you a fairly sweet-tasting 60% bar with cocoa nibs. Here the chocolate is 45% organic cocoa beans, 34%organic cane sugar, 7% organic cocoa butter, 14%organic cocoa nibs and 0.3% soya lecithin with a touch of vanilla flavouring.
This bar does have a complex flavour in that the naturally acidic of the Grenada chocolate is reduced a great deal with the use of the sugar and cocoa butter but then taken in a slightly different direction by the cocoa nibs that are included into the mix and can be visibly seen as you unwrap the bar from its foil. In terms of flavour notes I found it to be mainly banana and mangoes which was a delight and seemed to produce a Caribbean punch like experience. Furthermore, this bar is suitable for vegans and is gluten free.
