Taste test: This package had a nice new take on the whole cacao percentage thing that seems to have dominated the dark chocolate industry. Instead of just choosing a particular cacao number and making a bar that way, they included four different kinds — 27%, 40%, 55% and 70% — in individual pieces, providing three blocks of each. It wasn't a multi-section bar, but instead came in a 4x3 grid of detached pieces. The four kinds were each progressively lighter shades of brown as the percentage went down, with the 27% one looking most like a milk chocolate bar. To prevent any confusion over which piece was which kind, they were also coded with shapes on top, corresponding to a key on the inner wrapper.
For me, this whole system sounded quite nice, as I'm generally a milk chocolate fan and a tolerator of dark chocolate, but this seemed like a better way than any I've seen to try a variety and learn about them.
I tried them all with some cold whole milk, and I could definitely notice differences in taste among them, all good in their own ways. I was a big fan of the packaging, good for comparison and for sharing.
