EAT: Pure Dark Chocolates
I’m not sure if there’s a heaven, but if there is I know what kind of chocolate you’ll find there- the “Serious” dark chocolate slab with caramelized nibs and coarse sugar by Pure Dark. The artesian chocolate company which is based out of a little shop at 350 Bleecker Street and ships around the world, put the word “serious” right in the title and for good reason, this is game changing chocolate. The company boasts an array of dark chocolate choices on its menu from the addictive “Classic” chocolate bark which sensually combines sweet with salty mixing in toppings like almonds, sour cherries, and caramelized nibs to their “Fusion” fruit and nut mix which might be added to my last meal if I ever end up on death row, right beside the previously mentioned chocolate slab and a large coffee. In addition to the fourteen varieties of chocolate barks, slabs, and fruit & nut mixes. the chocolatiers also offer an enticing array of pure chocolate nibs and rounds such as the chipotle cinnamon variation, which adds a wonderful bite of heat to the flavor profile making for an exotic taste.
This is not your run of the mill high end chocolate we are talking about, this is stuff to write poetry about and once you try it, the over the counter stuff will seem like a cheap rebound after a life-altering relationship.
