Friday Favorite: Taza Chocolate

September 13th, 2013

I’m not a chocoholic, but I do like a bit of good chocolate every now and then.  Milk chocolate is not my thing, I find it much too sweet.  Dark chocolate is more my speed, the darker the better.  Recently, I’ve fallen in love with Taza chocolate.  It’s stone ground and made without emulsifiers, so there’s no soy lecithin or other weirdness involved.  The texture is different that regular chocolate, but I like it.

It’s not cheap chocolate, but it’s good quality and it’s tastes great. I don’t buy it that often, but when I do I enjoy every last bit of it. One of the things I like about buying really great chocolate is that a tiny square is enough, no need to eat the entire bar, which means a bar or round will last me a few weeks. Taza comes with different flavor additions: ginger, chipotle, coffee, cinnamon and salt & pepper (which is my favorite).

What’s your favorite brand of chocolate?
