I know I've done a post about Soma before, but being master chocolate makers, they come up with new products all the time and this one definitely deserves the mention. At $9 a pop, an Old School chocolate bar has become a recent guilty pleasure of mine. Just how does one justify $9 for a chocolate bar?
As the name alludes to, this chocolate bar takes it back to basics. Two ingredients, partially ground cocoa beans and organic cane sugar--nothing more, nothing less. Its simplicity is what makes it so delicious. Being the most important part of the bar, each batch is labeled with where the cocoa bean originates from, as well as what type of bean they used.
Rather than being packed tightly, Old School also crumbles in your mouth as it melts. This creates a light texture to counterbalance the richness of the chocolate. Honestly, it has to be one of the best chocolate bars I've ever had and is probably what keeps me coming back despite its $9 price tag.
