I was expecting nothing, but I falled in love with the taste and texture! Complexity is there, but the key role here is just plain fun!
I purchase all kinds of chocolate for my son but this Old School Dark 66% is the only one he actually eats!!! He absolutely loves it. When I found out how much he enjoyed it I got him a couple of packages for his birthday. Highlight of the day!
SOMA's Old School Dark is so dang delish!
Due to the way it's minimally made, it has a textured unique mouthfeel.
So try it, I really think you'll love it!
I think by far this is the most special chocolate I have ever tried and I do like it a lot. If you are searching for smth new, you should try this one. Consistency is harsh and this is the part I like about the chocolate the most. It tastes row and natural. Flavor is very intense too. Plus it looks pretty different from the regular smooth chocolates - you can see the rough texture.
The texture is extremely coarse and the bar looks like a baked brownie. Sunshine scents: flowers, apricot, and wild strawberries.
Each bite makes you think about "Torrone duro alle mandorle" (almond nougat). But the texture gets better reminding honey crunchy shards. The flavor is a glorious mix of light muscovado sugar, sacher torte, and wild strawberry jam. My feelings towards Madagascar's origin just evolved in pure love. You can actually eat all "bar" in a blink! The only side note is the texture. The bar I purchased and tasted was actually hard like a rock...that is why 3 stars.

Besides their wonderful line of chocolate bars, Soma also uses their chocolate to make ganache for truffles, and other chocolate treats.
