    The Holy Grail of Chocolate Bars. I’ve purchased 60+ and counting.

    I was not a fan of this at all, surprisingly. It seems like most people either love it or just think it’s so-so. For me, I actively dislike it and am not even going to finish the rest of the bar. I can’t put my finger on what I don’t like about it – it’s not that it’s “too bitter” (63% isn’t that high for dark chocolate, as far as I know), and I normally like salted chocolate stuff. But this particular bar has an unpleasant taste to me and isn’t worth it for dessert.

    Has sort of a tart, fruity taste that I did not like at all. Couldn’t finish it.

    This is likely a rebranded Beyond Good (formerly Madecasse) chocolate bar. The ingredients are the same, the names (sea salt and nibs; as well as the 92% dark chocolate) are the same. The flavor profile and texture of the sea salt and nibs are the same. I dislike the beyond dark 92% dark chocolate bar because it has a chalkier texture than the 63% so didn’t try the TJ version. Only difference is that TJ is $1.99 while the Beyond Good is more expensive.

    This is likely a rebranded Beyond Good (formerly Madecasse) chocolate bar, or at least a chocolate bar made by Chocolaterie Cinagra in Madagascar. You can check the ingredients, they are the same, the names (sea salt and nibs; as well as the 92% dark chocolate) are the same, the type of packaging using a cardboard sleeve over foil (versus the packaging used by chocolaterie robert the other chocolate factory). The flavor profile and texture of the sea salt and nibs are the same being a strong citrus flavor typical of madagascar cacao. I dislike the beyond dark 92% dark chocolate bar because it has a chalkier texture than the 63% so didn’t try the TJ version. Only difference is that TJ is $1.99 while the Beyond Good is more expensive. the good is that they are a local madascar brand using local people to make this using cacao beans sourced from local farmers; it’s a small island and slave labor and industrial non-organic methods don’t exist.

    I also like to add, based on quick internet research….. it’s a chocolate bar made by Chocolaterie Cinagra in Madagascar. You can check the ingredients, they are the same, the names (sea salt and nibs; as well as the 92% dark chocolate) are the same, the type of packaging using a cardboard sleeve over foil (versus the packaging used by chocolaterie robert the other chocolate factory). The flavor profile and texture of the sea salt and nibs are the same being a strong citrus flavor typical of madagascar cacao. The brand is made in madagascar using local people, using cacao beans sourced from local farmers; it’s a small island and the use of slave labor and industrial, non-organic methods don’t exist.
