Firstly Ritual's packaging is beautiful and their commitment to quality admirable. To me this bar tastes like integrity. It's deep, dark and sexy. The snap is clean and the texture buttery smooth, enrobing the mouth. The cacao flavor is bright and bold - fruity sharpness melding with a rich earthiness, each taking a turn dancing on your tongue as it melts away, leaving only the barest tart aftertaste to linger. It's making me wax lyrical, so yes, it's pretty damn good.
this chocolatier seems to put a lot of work into how they source their cacao. this particular bar is a nice balanced 100% bar, and from what I can taste it seems to have a substantial amount of cacao fat content, which rounds it out and makes it less "intense." a great bar for someone who maybe hasn't quite graduated from 90% land and wants to take the next step :)
A nice tip about the added fat and going from 90% to 100%, thank you!

Collection title: Ritual Chocolate
Collection description: Ritual Chocolate, based in Utah, owned by Robbie Stout and Anna Davies are masters at balancing sugar and cacao. This sophisticated chocolate maker only uses those two ingredients to make their chocolate, with no added soy, butter or vanilla. We appreciate Ritual for their purposeful variations in cacao percentage from harvest to harvest to produce the best tasting chocolate. Ritual is crafted on European methods with an American style. Their journey began back in 2008 in Boulder, Colorado, both cyclists, they noticed that both coffee and cycling companies focused on cyclists. They wondered why and sampled over 20 different cups of coffee with an expert. Robbie was surprised to learn how every cup tastes different due to the roast and where it was grown. From there they learned about terroir and thought well, everyone is doing coffee; why not chocolate! They already ate a little pieces of chocolate every night after dinner, it was their ‘ritual’. Robbie and Anna spent the following years in Costa Rica after taking ownership of an old chocolate factory. They meticulously studied the craft of chocolate, reading every manual on machinery and everything in between. Their attention to detail and dedication has really demonstrated through their award winning chocolate bars.

Collection description: These chocolates do not list soy products as a main ingredient. Some of the chocolates say: "may contain traces of soy" where perhaps a very small amount may have come in contact with the food due to shared equipment or facility usage. Each product has icons that indicate whether a product is completely soy free or may contain traces.
