Sesame and Goji Berry Stone-Ground ChocolateMADE BY CHOCOVIVO IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
With not just one but two supposed superfoods, this bar is automatically more divine than your typical chocolate. The toasted sesame seeds lend an extra richness to the chocolate, bringing a toasty nuttiness recalling the decadence of Halvah, while Goji berries bring a tropical zing and a satisfying chew.
Ah, Shangri-La: a heaven on earth. A mystical valley of utopian happiness. Exotic and lusted after. A chocolate bar with Shangri-La as its namesake has a lot to live up to, but in this case, it's deserved.
ChocoVivo makes this bar with pesticide-free beans sourced from a single plantation in Tebasco, Mexico that are then fermented for two or three days, sun-dried, lightly roasted and stone-ground with no additional cocoa butter or additives.
