Mouth says...

This beautifully bittersweet bar is made of 72% bittersweet chocolate that’s been (kind of brilliantly) topped with black lava sea salt. That’s right, it sparkles. It also tastes like everything you could ever possibly be craving all at once. Slightly salty, slightly sweet, just a little bitter, and dressed up as a bat. Perfect. Bat Bar sounds like something out of a comic book candy shop, but we promise this deeply dark and delightful chocolate bar is 100% real.

Chocolatier Valerie Gordon opened her business in Echo Park in 2004, and has been crafting high quality chocolates, preserves, and cakes ever since. Totally batty.

TIP OF THE TONGUE

It’s always felt a little unfair that Halloween candy is aimed solely at the kiddos. Grown-ups love it too, let’s just get that out there. Valerie Confections’ Bat Bar is actually a genius way for us adults to get in on the Halloween sweets action, without stealing the kids’ thunder – or trick or treat haul. Give this bar as a gift to your Halloween host, or bring it along on All Hallows Eve to share among the parents while the little ones fill plastic pumpkins with goodies of their own.

POPPIN SAYS...

“Remember the joy of stepping off that big yellow school bus and fixing yourself an after school snack? This is like that, but for grown-ups with sophisticated palates.”
