Bar of the Week: Grenada 71%

Our bar of the week is what might be considered a "green" chocolate, grown and processed on a lush island nation in the Caribbean.  Founded in 1999, Grenada-based Grenada Chocolate Company produces chocolate using cacao from a co-operative group of organic farmers.  The factory is located in a rain forest and operates off solar energy. 

Grenada's 71% is a dark chocolate that also includes organic vanilla from Costa Rica and organic sugar from Paraguay.  It's intense and somewhat fruity, with a notably long finish and a refined texture. 

You can sample Grenada 71% at our store in downtown Bellevue on Thursday, March 10th, or at our Queen Anne flagship on Saturday, March 12th.
