Seattle Chocolate Company Dark Chocolate 
Posted: 12 November 2011    3.5 
Seattle Chocolate Company Dark Chocolate At 53%, this bar isn't really dark. Seattle Chocolates lightens the bar further by blending in their 33% milk base with this dark.  Seattle Chocolates insists that the bar is all-natural, but in this day and age, all natural could mean the fillers and inferior ingredients are all natural. By the time I bit into the last chunk of this bar, I concluded that I, too, had done these bars to death.  
Avg price/gram: USD 0.043   Cocoa %: 53  Size: 70g   
       


Whatever limited credibility the Seattle Chocolate Company in Washington had with me melted after tasting this bar.        

To remind you, in case you haven't read my prior reviews of this turkey brand, Seattle Chocolate Company is based in a fantasyland of their own making in which they're meant to produce chocolates using special ingredient called fun.  This American chocolate manufacturer has been around since 1992, gets all its chocolate from Europe, and specializes in truffle bars.  

I love my wife, so up till now I hadn't let her get near these bars. Why would I wish to possibly murder my wife?  Then I remembered that she liked the Lindt Lindor truffle bar.  Who was I to say she wouldn't like Seattle Chocolates' Dark Chocolate truffle bar?        

She didn't and not because this bar is 'dark.'  At 53%, this bar isn't really dark chocolate.  Seattle Chocolates lightens the bar further by blending in their 33% milk base with this dark.  The problem was that this bar tasted waxy, artificial.   Seattle Chocolates insists that the bar is all-natural, but in this day and age, all natural could mean the fillers and inferior ingredients are all natural.   'All Natural' doesn't have the same cachet value it once had.  It's gone down the same pike as 'Made with the finest ingredients.'  It's all been cliched to death.

By the time I bit into the last chunk of this bar, I concluded that I, too, had done these bars to death.  These chocolates can stay in Seattle.
