Pros: Fortified with vitamins, organic
Cons: Kind of crunchy, not super rich or "chocolatey"
So if you think of Ecco Bella's Health by Chocolate bars as vitamins or nutritional supplements, then they get 5 stars. I mean, seriously...if your supplement tastes like this, then cheers! But if you think of it as a chocolate bar...it's only okay. And that's really how I'm judging it...because while it's great that after eating one chocolate bar, I get 15% of my daily Vitamin D2 and D3 and 45% of my calcium...I'd rather take a multi-vitamin or something and THEN eat a really good piece of chocolate.
Flavor wise, it's okay. I've only had the "Beautiful Bones" kind which is kind of orange/chocolate. I certainly didn't throw away the rest of the bar after the first bite. But I also certainly wasn't begging for more. It's not a very rich or flavorful chocolate. It's quite mild...and a little...eh. I think the weirdest thing about it is the texture. It's relatively smooth but again...it's not rich and definitely doesn't melt in your mouth. And...it's rather crunchy it seems. Now, I don't necessarily want chocolate as soft as butter...but when you're crunching away almost until you swallow it...it's a little odd.
In any case, I do appreciate that it's fair trade, organic, and full of good stuff...but....it's not enough to make me want to get another bar.
