Pascha Organic Dark Chocolate
Pascha Organic Dark Chocolate makes eight decadent dark chocolate bars in an allergen-free beans-to-bar facility to ensure the purity of their chocolate. Free of nuts, peanuts, soy, dairy, wheat, gluten, and egg with no genetically modified ingredients, the bars have full ingredient traceability. Rich, dark and delicious, these bars are the essence of simplicity, made with the firm belief that the less you touch a food product, the more delicious the taste.
The three standard Pascha Organic Dark Chocolate bars come in three strengths: 55%, 70%, and 85%, all of which are made with five organic ingredients: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa powder, and vanilla. For those who have not discovered the wonder of dark chocolate, start with the 55%, which tastes the sweetest of the three bars and work your way up.
Fine dark chocolate is a lot like red wine…over time with lots of tasting comes an appreciation for the complexities of dark chocolate, which are greatly influenced by the cocoa bean, just as the taste of wine is greatly influenced by the grape and the environment in which the fruit are grown.
For the more adventurous, Pascha Organic Dark Chocolate offers five dark chocolate bars: 55% Cacao with Cocoa Nibs (tiny pieces of fermented, dried, roasted, and crushed cacao beans), 55% Cacao with Goldenberries (a sweet berry native to Peru), 60% Cacoa with Maca (a plant native to the high Andes of Peru whose root is cooked), 70% Cacao with Arabica Coffee (from coffee beans that were indigenous to Ethiopia and then naturalized in many Latin American countries, including Peru), and 70% Cacao with Lacuma (a subtropical fruit native to Peru).
The common attribute of all these bars is that the dark chocolate is combined with ingredients found naturally together, grown in the same environment: an action rarely considered but one that makes total sense.
