I’d heard about Theobroma chocolate for a while and just tried it. I love it! I got the “plain” version (some had coffee or fruit), and it’s just perfect. 70 % cocoa, pleasantly bitter, nice smooth mouthfeel (doesn’t melt too quickly or too slowly), great to savour.
It’s both organic and fair-trade chocolate. The ingredients are vegan, though the label warns of possible cross-contamination with dairy products as well as with nuts and tree nuts.
As a side note, I recently found YouTube videos (in French) of two of my favourite teachers from my university days. My genetics teacher explains that theobroma means “food of the gods”, while my cellular biology teacher explains... something that has nothing to do with food.
