Flavorful, feel-good dark chocolate
Darkness from ChocoSol is a pure and simple dark chocolate bar. It’s made with 75% dark chocolate and boasts with lots of complex flavors like wine, nut and even fruit. This dark chocolate bar is one of the best ways to experience the flavor of ChocoSol’s cacao blends from Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Ecuador. Its deep dark flavor tastes great alone but also tastes great in combination with red wine. Moreover, you can grate it over your granola or fruit snack to add some chocolaty goodness.
What is stone-ground chocolate?
What makes ChocoSol’s chocolate even more special, is that it’s stone ground. This is an ancient technique used by the Aztecs and Mayans to turn cocoa beans into chocolate. During the chocolate-making process, ChocoSol roasts the cacao nibs and then hand-grinds them against Mexican stone mills. The result is a truly unconventional chocolate with an almost gritty texture. Don’t be put off by that though, the flavor is so rich, natural, and dark, that you will never crave a Hershey milk chocolate bar again.

ChocoSol uses a unique blend of cacao varieties from indigenous communities in Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Ecuador. All of their chocolate bars are stone-ground in their own facility. Moreover, they’re all vegan, gluten-free, nut-free and soy-free.
