My favorite Original Beans bar. Absolute rockstar flavor. Mellow spice and lightest woody licorice laying tenderly on top of an overwhelming tahini taste - which very much does it for me. Slightly bitter and aromatic. Buttery texture.
It is a very mellow dark chocolates, has notes of liquorice, grass and honey to me, without noticeable acidic taste. Even though no cocoa butter added, the texture is still smooth and takes a bit more time for it to melt. It has a good balance of sweetness and bitterness, very elegant and beautiful bar.
This bar has some unique flavor notes- liquorice, chile pepper, sesame, and what I can only describe as a distinct medicinal bitterness, or like something like bitters. If you're looking for something different and complex, this is a great one to try.

Collection title: Sierra Nevada, Colombia
Collection description: The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a Colombian mountain range just 50 miles from the Venezuelan border. The region is popular with visitors, in part thanks to the development of cultural tourism infrastructure centered around the indigenous Arhuaco peoples. Cacao from the Sierra Nevada region has become particularly famous thanks to farmers’ high degree of technical expertise— they’re even running their own pollination trials to improve quality and yields.
Collection title: Soy Free Chocolate
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.
