Our expert chocolatiers use unique flavor combinations, quality organic ingredients and an artisan's touch to craft these award-winning, habit-forming bars.

This is a very tasty bar, but contains a little more sugar than I might like. At 30 grams of sugar per 80 grams, this equates to more than 2 Tbsp of sugar per bar. While I love the fact that Alter Eco uses whole, unrefined cane sugar to sweeten their bars, that is a little more sugar than I like to consume at any one sitting. Delicious, but to be consumed in moderation. Still. With such a high fat and fiber content, it is still pretty blood sugar friendly. That is good. :-)
This is probably my fave iHerb chocolate. The crunchy cocoa nibs are fabulous, and they make this less sweet.

This is seriously good chocolate of highest quality. The cacao nibs are crunchy and yummy. My only criticism is that I would like the cacao nibs in the chocolate to be NOT roasted. Roasting cacao nibs kills lots of antioxidants and other very beneficial nutrients raw cacao nibs have. At the moment Alter Eco adds roasted cacao nibs to the chocolate bar.

This chocolate is wonderful. With small bits of crunchy cocoa beans, not overly sweet. The only issue is the size versus price, but you can't expect such an high quality product to be cheap.
