I'm curious -- has anyone tried "Kallari Chocolate"? I first learned about the company in the New York Times. In case you're interested, here is the link to the article.http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/05/dining/05choc.html

Yes. I picked a bar up at Whole Foods. I still have part of the bar at home. As well as my notes. :( It's a nice story, but I think the chocolate was only decent. Not much for me to write home about. :) There were 2 bars available at my local Whole Foods - the only difference I could see was in sugar content and I picked up the one with the lesser amount of sugar.

I had the same sort of tasting experience with "Shaman Chocolates." (also available at Whole Foods) Perhaps the company -- and others like it -- will aim to further improve their product. Thanks for the comment, James!

Yes! I tried some at the DC Green Festival in July '07. It was some of the most sublime dark chocolate I'd ever tasted, and I'm somewhat fussy about chocolate. I picked up a number of bars at the festival, and I was delighted to find out that Whole Foods is carrying it. (We don't have a Whole Foods locally, but when I travel to someplace that does, I'll be looking for them.)I'm not sure which type(s) Whole Foods is offering, but the two kinds I picked up at the festival were called Robertos Recipe and Sisa's Secret. (No, I didn't memorize this. I looked it up recently when I was trying to find some more.)There was a third kind that I sampled called Diegos Decadence. It wasn't bad, but I liked the other two better. And I was surprised at how different they were from one another. I can't describe the difference from memory, but I ordered some online recently and when I they arrive I'll try to describe the difference in words.

"Taste" is what makes the world go round - and everyone has his or her favorites. I know what I like, and never had a great yearning for a "dark" chocolate because it was too bitter to my taste. Then came Kallari...Whole Foods had a new display and I, sans shopping list, was hungry. There were many interesting things in my bag when I got home (sound familiar?), but one was a Kallari 85% Cacao bar. To MY taste, this was a revelation, and I haven't looked back since. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Delicate, neither too sweet nor bitter. A chocolate dream to a sensitive palate.Yes, at least try it. Hope you like it even half as much as I do. The company is also really interesting - as you know. I've been there, and they're really good people.
