Super Seeds Crunch from: Fearless
This week’s posting comes from an encouraging push to restart Chocolate by the Week and the gift of this wonderful, delightful, and scrumptious bar from my friend Esther over at http://www.abcvegan.com/
This bar it a even dark tone that is expected for a dark chocolate bar, with a smooth semigloss-like appearance. The cast star pattern is unique and visually appealing and adds just one more “special touch” to this wonderful bit of chocolate. And did you notice the missing bite? Just one more bit of fun from the folks at FEARLESS, I’ll explain more later.
Much like its design the texture adds a wonderful fun factor! A bit reminiscent of the Crunch bars, all the seeds give this smooth chocolate bar a delightful “extra” texture. Well distributed though the bar the “super seeds” provide a satisfying crunch with out overwhelming the smooth melty chocolate.
Plain and simple, its good! It has the earthy nutty flavor you’d expect from the added ingredients of the hemp, chia, flax, and salted sunflower seeds. You can expect the smooth and rich texture of a quality 70% cocao bar.
So whats the deal with the missing bite? Wheres the rest of my chocolate! According to the explanation on the back of the (wonderfully re-closable) package the “deal” is: “Our bars are shaped with a “bite,” showing the portion of our proceeds we give back to ChangeMakers nom(nom nom nom)itnated by YOU!”
The crunch with out the carbs or blandness of white rice, the smooth chocolatey of a well crafted 70% cocao bar, and just a bit of nutty/earth flavor makes this bar a delightful treat indeed.
Unfortunately this “comeback” post for me, is an ill timed one for Fearless. According to their site they’re closing their doors. @ http://www.fearlesschocolate.com/farewell//. If you can find any of this awesome chocolate before its gone for good. I would highly encourage you to buy it, all of it, and send some to me. Thanks!
Summary: A silly bit of chocolate with a cute little gimmick.
Everything about this chocolate bar is whimsical, from the cast print on the chocolate itself, the inner wrapper, and the “bite.”
