Ritual Juniper Lavender Chocoolate 70%
Firstly, I love the delicate yet detailed packaging of this bar. About the taste, it is singular and floral but in a good way. Of course, everything is based on personal preferences. But Ritual delivers a genuine and natural tasting experience with citrudy and floral notes. Very elegant and unique.
The floral juniper and lavender notes are interesting but do not overwhelm the chocolate, and they serve to bring out the fruitiness that I find from so many of Ritual's bars. This would be a fun one to have with gin-based cocktails, anything floral or vaguely herbal. I find Ritual's chocolate on-the-whole a bit too "hard" and not melty enough texture-wise, but this flavor combination is unique and appealing. The packaging is also quite artful. Opening a Ritual bar is certainly an experience.

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 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.
