03 Oct Hey, J. Dorian Chocolatier 85% Dark Chocolate Bar-I'm Your Newest Fan
I am not a fan of dark chocolate. There-I said it. Judge me if you must. I know it’s better for me-full of antioxidants, heart protecting goodness and less sugar, etc. but put me in a milk chocolate vs. dark chocolate situation and milk is going to win every time. Or so I thought.
Dorian decided to create his own dark chocolate bar in response to all of the 80% bars he’d sampled over the years. They were too bitter and not smooth at all, he explained. He upped the ante to 85% and found the smooth texture and sweetness he was looking for in a dark chocolate. The increase in cacao mass in the 85% bar means its got more antioxidants and less sugar–which is better for a person with diabetes, he explained. More flavor also means less is required to satisfy that chocolate craving. Dorian knows his nutrition as he has been living with and managing his diabetes for 13 years.
I took the bar home and gave it to my friend. She wanted me to taste it with her and I couldn’t say no. It’s no wonder that Dorian sells hundreds of these bars every week. Delicious-smooth and creamy texture with just a hint of bitterness (I was expecting full on face contorting bitterness). It was bliss–and I was satisfied after only 1 square. (1 oz is all that is recommended for nutritional health!). Next time I’m met with a dark chocolate vs. milk chocolate situation, the dark chocolate will win. Only if its J. Dorian’s 85% Dark Chocolate bar, that is.
