Ok, guys. I swear that I’m not trying to overwhelm you with various product reviews, but if I find something awesome I want to share it with you. Especially if that something is handmade and local. Which is why I want…no NEED to tell you about this chocolate.
Kris and I were out exploring Front Royal yesterday. It was a gorgeous day, and we just needed a change of scenery. While we were browsing at Gathered, one of my all-time favorite shops, Kris just happened to pick up a handmade chocolate bar. So I bought us one to share on a whim.
It was possibly the best chocolate I have ever had in my entire life. Top five at least. We ended up trying the Black Flower Cacao by Immortal Mountain Chocolates which is a dark chocolate sweetened with honey and hints of jasmine and bee pollen. Again…I’m not being paid for this post, but it’s amazing how having something that is really good quality puts things into perspective.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m trying to overhaul my diet despite a major sweet tooth. But this chocolate (which bears a striking resemblance to fudge) was so good that we didn’t even have to finish the entire bar to feel satisfied. I think it just goes to show that sometimes it’s worth it to choose quality over quantity.
I always like to support local businesses, so I’ll definitely be checking out their online shop. What about you, dear readers? Have any of you tried any of the other flavors? I’m particularly intrigued by the Forest Cove or Neroli Grove flavors.
