Salt & Pepper Chocolate Bar

MADE BY OLIVE & SINCLAIR IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE

MOUTH SAYS...

Salt and pepper are rarely seen apart, but when it comes to chocolate, pepper tends to get the short end of the stick. Not so here – both spices work together, taking on new life in a context beyond the kitchen. Kosher salt is the perfect backdrop to boost out the complex flavor of this 67% Ghanaian chocolate, while the freshly cracked black pepper is nothing to sneeze at: its delicious mild heat gives this bar the full yin-yang flavor factor. 

You can taste the South in these small-batch bars from the heart of Music City. In maker Scott Witherow's signature Southern Artisan Chocolate method, traditional technique meets modern innovation and a distinctly Southern twang. Cacao beans are slow-roasted, stone-ground and combined with brown sugar, giving the finished chocolate a subtle, delicious molasses flavor – sleepily sweet, like the best country songs.

Tip of the Tongue

Like salt and pepper, this bar is good with everything. We recommend serving it at a dinner party (with a Salt and Pepa soundtrack, of course) and challenging guests to guess what it's flavored with – they'll be shocked at how simple the answer is!
