Choclatique Bar

This guest review was written by Vito LaBella.

When the editor of Candy Addict asked me to review the following chocolate bar I was both flattered and a little intimidated. What are my qualifications? Well, I like chocolate. In fact, it is the only real sweet I allow myself. However, I am not a chocolate connoisseur, aficionado or even – dare I say it – Addict.

I am a borderline obsessive compulsive, so in order to complete my requested task I had to research, research, and do more research. What I found was not news: chocolate has health benefits (truer for dark chocolate, defined as having at least 65% cocoa), chocolate tasting can be compared to wine tasting, and there are a lot of pretentious chocolates and chocolate reviews out there.

Rather than talk about “mouth feel” or the “snap” of a particular chocolate bar, I am going to give my overall impressions on this particular bar. The bar that I was asked to review, Choclatique’s Q91, is a 91% cocoa blend purportedly from Central and South America as well as Africa and Asia. It costs about $6.50 per 100 gram bar.
