Sweetriot Chocolate - Pure Dark Chocolate 60%

Sweetriot – Pure 60% Dark Chocolate! [Review]

Sweetriot?recently sent me free samples of their?new line of chocolate riotBars.?Before the riotBar additions, they sold chocolate in unBars, which were in thick, unwieldy blocks. I have an unBar that’s been?kicking around my stash?for a while. I’ve yet to open it because it seemed so cumbersome to eat.

Sweetriot is also known for their cacao nibs, which I reviewed?ages ago. It’s nice to see that a chocolate company committed to using fair trade cacao has prospered over the years.

Today, I’m reviewing the pure 60% dark chocolate with crunchy cacao nibs. Friday I’ll review the pure 70% and pure 85% dark chocolate bars.

The 100g bar was lightly scored into a 10 x 3 grid. Each rectangle of chocolate had 20 calories, which is a nice nod to portion control, except the scoring was too shallow to be that helpful for clean breaking.

The chocolate had a thick, sharp snap. If you look closely, you can see a nib in the break line. Those nibs added a nice, dry crunch with minimal grittiness and astringency. The chocolate had a lovely, matte melt around the nibs.

The chocolate was sweet and fruity with middle cherry notes and a vibrant cocoa finish. I appreciated the distinct and assertive flavor complexity.

I really enjoyed the texture of the nibs mixed with the chocolate.?It made from fun chomping and yielded great, varying chocolate flavors. An OMG.
