Sjaak's Organic Chocolate Reviews


Fan of the 70% dark chocolate


Pros: organic, made in California, family owned company

Cons: not all chocolates are equally rich

I've tried a number of the Sjaak's Organic Chocolate bars now...and I have a few more at home waiting for a chocolate craving to strike.  So let's see, I think I've tried the chocolate/almond kind, the chocolate/carmel kind, the chocolate/mint kind, and the 70% extra dark chocolate.  I thought the 70% dark was the richest and creamiest.  I think of all those kinds, it was my favorite.  The chocolate/mint is like the bar form of a Junior Mint.  The chocolate/almond was another good one, but I think I'd probably pass on the chocolate/caramel one in the future.

So close...


Pros: organic, fair trade, CHOCOLATE =)

Cons: espresso bar not-so-hot

 I REALLY want to try the bar with almonds, or just the plain dark chocolate one. I sampled the espresso bar and ... I'm not excited to polish it off WHICH says a lot for me and my relationship with chocolate.  I totally love that it is organic and fair trade - but Sjaak's may have missed the mark with their espresso conquest. First off - it was a tad sweet for my chocolate tooth, but I can get over that if everything else pulls through. Unfortunately, the main problem I had was with the espresso part. The other espresso chocolate experiences I have had included whole espresso beans within the bar. I remain undecided as to whether I like that or not. I was kind of excited for the...

Tasty goodness


Pros: Fair trade, organic

Despite the fact that we had Sjaak's samples at the Taste of Green event - I was running 'round a bit too much to partake, so we procured some more.  After just wolfing down a bar of the dark chocolate with almonds (see pics above) and also having a piece of a dark chocolate with caramel, I'm sated and only wish I had found some time to have a peanut butter cup at the event.  I respect brands going the extra mile to be organic and fair trade - it's also great to see that taste doesn't have to suffer as a result. Thanks Sjaak's!

A lighthearted dark chocolate


Pros: delicious, chocolate, not too sweet not too bitter

Cons: is there such a thing for chocolate

I was pleasently surprised but the subtle taste of this dark chocolate delicious bar of goodness - especially since it is 70% dark.  It was hardly bitter and definitely didn't leave any weird aftertaste. Would this be my chocolate bar of choice?  Let's be honest, I'm not picky at all when it comes to my sweet tooth.  I wouldn't put this in my top ten, but as far as organic, veagan treats go, this would be my number one.

Yum organic chocolate


Pros: organic, fair trade

Cons: price

I recently tried the dark chocolate and the chocolate with peanut butter samples.  I really enjoyed the chocolate and peanut butter sample--peanut butter junkies here is your heads up.  I am always searching for good fair trade chocolate and this one is right up there.


Most of the time organic chocolate doesn't do it for me. It tends to be chalky and kinda Hershey-like. The dark chocolate is far from Hershey, but it's still missing the delicacy of those expensive designer chocolates I'll never be able to afford. Regardless, this is certainly the best organic chocolate I've had. If you're denying that you still eat non-organic chocolate (it's harder to kick than crack), than this is a good product to bring out for your organic woo-woo friends while you're chowing down on the $12 truffle you hid in the lamp shade.
