Raaka Chocolate- anyone tried it?

I may have just stumbled on a new chocolate company.  Here are the FAQ's...coconut is the only "nut", it's also Dairy free

Oh I'm so excited to see how you like it...I'm on the fence since I just ordered chocolate from No Whey, but this sounds so interesting.

I didnít order anything too creative. Iím a purist when it comes to chocolate (most of the time, anyway). I got one sea salt bar and two bourbon dark bars. Weíll see how these are. Then I might branch out.

I ordered a couple of the small batch flavors to try out.  Waffle cone and snickerdoodle...will save them for when DD is home from college.

OK, I tried their 82% Bourbon aged bar.

Itís OK. I have to qualify this by saying that I really prefer my chocolate between 85-92% dark. And yes, I do know how ridiculous that sounds to normal people but I really prefer bitter flavors to sweet ones.

Anyhoo, I think most people would like it. It just wasnít dark enough for me. My DH really liked it. And the texture is good.

That's so funny, I ordered the 60-something % ones to try because I don't love all dark chocolate...most are too dark for me.

Well, just opened the box...these are some small chocolate bars for what $8 a pop.  Even if we love this, it might be a one and done order.
