Over the last few week's, I've been tasting a few of Cócó's chocolate bars, including a delicious 'Fleur de Sel' dark chocolate bar, an almond, a coconut, and a Pistachio chocolate bar. The inclusions were gently sprinkled on the back of each chocolate bar, and each nut and coconut piece was large, so I could break the bar up and enjoy a piece of just the chocolate on its own, or a piece of chocolate with an inclusion, like a whole almond or coconut flake.
My favourite was the coconut, because the flakes were large and toasted, adding a lovely crispy/crunchy texture with a perfect toasted coconut flavour.
Overall, the chocolate was smooth and very flavourful in that Hispaniola Dominican cacao sort of way. Albeit still a little rustic in style, the overall experience was quite enjoyable and an awesome find at the farmer's market! This is a great start for Cócó, and so I am excited to see how this little chocolate company flourishes.
According to McAleer's posts on Facebook, Cócó is also now making maple-sweetened chocolate, white chocolate and 45% dark-milk chocolate!

|I loved the taste of the Dominican-origin chocolate in this Pistachio chocolate bar. Bright, beautiful chocolate flavour with a perfect balance of sweet and bitter.|
