Green and Black Organic Chocolate

I became a Green and Black fan quite suddenly. I will never forget the moment it happened. As a rule, I do not like organic chocolate because the only organic chocolate that I had had tasted was waxy, nearly flavorless and general mockery of the that OTHER food group.

But I love caramel with chocolate. I just do. It's this weakness of mine that I can't help. So while in Regina, Saskatchewan's own and happened to see this:

I knew I was going to have to try it. I mean, for that price and with caramel? How bad could it be?!

How can I explain what it was like?

Chocolate. Pure. Unadulterated. Healthy for me. Chocolate.

Caramel. Smooth. Drippy. But not too drippy. Sweet. But not too sweet. Real. Caramel.

Rich. So rich I, the worst chocoholic of them all, could only eat two small sections of the chocolate bar. That made me feel good about myself. ;-)

I was completely swept off my feet and haven't been set back down. It's been months.

Because I was so enamored, I decided to take a closer look at their website: and found that they don't just specialize in Caramel Milk Chocolate Bars. Indeed, their repertoire or products expands far beyond what I had ever envisioned!

They sell many different kinds of Chocolate Bars... I have personally tried the Milk Chocolate and can recommend it. I am eager to try all of their others... White, Expresso, Almond, Maya Gold, Ginger, Hazelnut and Currant, Butterscotch, Dark 85%... etc, etc.

Then, I discovered something else about Green and Black Organic Chocolate: they sell Cocoa, Hot Chocolate Mix, Hazelnut Chocolate Spread, Chocolate eggs... and they even have recipes for things like this:

If you have a chance to buy some Green and Black product, believe me, it's worth the price. You don't taste quality like this every day, and you certainly don't experience twinges of conscience after indulging. :-)

There were a few reasons I wrote this post. One of them was an inside joke with a friend. Another was because I actually love this stuff. Another one was to see how many people I could get to admit to me they actually became hungry for chocolate after reading this post. ;)

The pictures help, too. Seriously, whenever I see them, I start feeling cravings. Hehe. Why do I torture myself?!

Yum yum! I just recently tried this (70% dark) and LOVED it. And like you, I only ate a little bit and felt completely satisfied. :) At Target it was on sale for $2.50 and you can coupons for a dollar off by liking them on Facebook! ;)
