Mission Chocolate 75% Cupuaçu Brazil Chocolate Bar Review

I first tried this bar during Hazel Lee’s Taste with Colour workshop in November at the NW Chocolate Festival in Seattle, WA.  Luckily there were some for sale at the show.  (This bar is the reason why bubble gum is listed as a tasting note on her flavour map).

Mission Chocolate is a small batch craft chocolate maker located in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This inclusion bar has the dried pulp of cupuaçu scattered generously on the back of the bar.   Cupuaçu (Theobroma grandiflorum) is related to cacao.  The three ingredients in this Brazil 2016 harvest bar are cacao, sugar and the cupuaçu.

Violet Sky Chocolate: Pierce The Veil Dark Chocolate Bar Review

Violet Sky Chocolate is a bean-to-bar maker located in South Bend, IN.  I’ve had some of their bars in the past, so I was especially happy to see them at last weekend’s NW Chocolate Festival in Seattle, WA so I could buy some more!

I love Violet Sky Chocolate wrappers but one in particular really caught my eye.  Their Pierce The Veil bar has this lovely shimmery wrapper with the label actually on the back of the bar.
