Dick Taylor Madagascar
These days, it seems like a new craft chocolate producer is popping up every day. Many of them have a shtick that appeals to our inner ironic mustache, with their hipster packaging and cool vibes all around. Most of them even preserve enough of the phenolic flavors in the beans. This makes the bars actually taste like they came from plants, unlike the indistinguishable vanilla-flavored candy approach to dark chocolate so often favored in Europe.
In true brash hipster American style, Dick Taylor's bars blast you with blaring flavors from start to finish that stay clean and pure through all their length. If Amedei is a chocolate symphony, Dick Taylor is chocolate punk rock. They are among a handful of American greats with a style all their own.
