Organic Swiss chocolate that is a darker than your average dark chocolate....and delicious too!

Organic chocolate bars most often come in milk chocolate, 55% dark chocolate, 70% dark chocolate and sometimes in 85% dark...but a 75% organic dark chocolate is virtually unheard of.  Until now, that is.  On a recent trip to The International Cheese Shop in Ottawa's Byward Market, I picked up a Chocolat Stella Organic Nature 75% Dark Chocolate bar that was imported from Switzerland.  True Swiss chocolate that is bitter, but also somewhat sweet, rich and absolutely delicious. It is certified organic by bio.inspecta AG and is USDA Organic certified. It is also all-natural and only contains four ingredients (cocoa mass, cane sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla).

Because this chocolate tasted so great, I have managed to slowly eat one piece at a time and savour the 100 gram chocolate bar since June...until today when I finally finished it.  This is truly an accomplishment for me!

You can learn more about this chocolate bar and other Chocolat Swiss products at: Interestingly, their website is promoting a new line of chocolate bars made with agave instead of sugar, for a low-glycemic chocolate experience. I need to get my hands on some of those!

There were a few other flavours on the shelf in The International Cheese Shop, so if you are in Canada's Capital I suggest you take a look at the selection as you walk in the door.
