About Honest Chocolate
Honest Chocolate is a small (just two chocolate-makers!) artisanal chocolate company based in Cape Town, South Africa. All their chocolate is hand crafted in small batches using traditional, old school chocolate making methods, including hand tempering the chocolate on a granite slab tabletop and hand dipping each chocolate bonbon. The bonbons are then boxed up and the slabs individually wrapped using eco friendly paper. Most chocolate is made from roasted cacao, however they use organic, raw cacao, which is higher in antioxidants and therefore even better for you than regular dark chocolate. The cacao is ethically sourced from Ecuador.
There are also no preservatives, additives or emulsifiers in their chocolate and it is free of dairy and processed sugar (instead of sugar we use Agave Nectar which has a very low GI).They believe in keeping things hand-crafted, using quality organically produced ingredients and making a pure chocolate that has a deliciously distinct feel and taste.
Raw organic cacao, Organic virgin coconut oil, organic blure agave nectar, organic vanilla pods.

What chocolate is supposed to taste like

Super impressed with this guilt free yummy! I have a spoonful when I feel like having something sweet and it is the most satisfying mouthful I know of when it comes to chocolate - this is what real chocolate is supposed to taste like.
Takes getting used to

If you like the genuine thing...this is a disappointment.

Wow - literally a CHOCOLATE spread.
Unlike the commercial chocolate spreads I have tried, which mainly taste like sugar and very fake chocolate, this actually TASTES like dark chocolate. Heavenly!! It has enough sweetness, but is not overpoweringly sweet. To be perfectly honest, I have never liked putting any chocolate spread on bread or toast. I just eat it straight from the jar!
I will definitely buy again :-)
Very nice treat

This stuff is absolute heaven. I do find that it hardens and needs to be put in warm water to be returned to its proper consistency, but it is definitely an effort worth making.

great way to get your choccie fix in the morning without feeling bag- slightly bitter but so great with a little butter on brown bread.

It is not quite Nutella but is a pretty good dairy free alternative.

Needs to warm up a bit before you can spread it easily.
Needs to warm up a bit before you can spread it easily. Not bad, but the texture is a little gritty.
Tastes great, not too sweet or too bitter!
