Trader Joe's 85% Dark Chocolate Lover’s Bar is one of the store's best-sellers, and now there's a rich and flavorful new 85% Dark Chocolate Bar for customers to try.
While Trader Joe's original 85% Dark Chocolate Lover’s Bar is made with cacao beans from the Tumaco region of Colombia, the newest bar is made with cacao from Uganda. More specifically, the beans are harvested from several small farms in Western Uganda, located at the foot of the Rwenzori Mountains. The cacao is harvested, dried, and fermented in this part of Uganda in partnership with a 3rd generation, family-owned Italian chocolatier. As Trader Joe's explains, "The final result of this African-Italian collaboration is fine, full-flavored, 85% Dark Chocolate that has rich caramel top notes and mildly fruity undertones—with just a slight acidity."
