Dagoba Organic Chocolate: Sweet Indulgences

Frederick Schilling was a chef who liked to dabble. He experimented with chocolate, adding chai and ginger to the mix, seeking to find the perfect Chocolate Alchemy. And from this experimentation, Dagoba Organic Chocolate was born.

Relying on the core values of Quality, Ecology, Equity and Community, Dagoba Organic Chocolate provides not only delicious, organic chocolate, but they also create a range of standard to completely unique blends to satisfy both the traditional chocolate lover and the adventurous eater (lemon-ginger chocolate, anyone?)

They feature a wide range of chocolates, from classic chocolate bars to baking and home chef chocolates to dark blends and infusions to drinking chocolates. And people are liking it: They won "Best Organic Bars" from Food & Wine, Food and Wine's 2005 Tastemaker Award, "World's Best Chocolate" (CNN/Money) and "Best Dark Chocolate" (San Francisco Chronicle), "Best Organic Bars" (Food & Wine), the EPA's 2005 Green Power Leadership Award and the 2005 Spirit of Organics Award (OTA/OFRF). With all this fuss, it seems almost foolish to not see what the hype is about.

You can order their chocolate online or purchase it at retailers across Canada.

I had to laugh - I just sat down, opened my Google Reader where I have subscribed to your blog and was ripping open the foil on the Dagoba "Eclipse" bar I just picked up at the Natural Food Pantry in the Byward Market.

87% dark chocolate to fie for!

Highly recommend!
