This week at House of Bedlam we got to review one of my favorite things – chocolate! It’s a tough job but someone has to do it…
What are barkTHINS?
barkTHINS snacking chocolates are a handcrafted new twist on traditional chunky chocolate bark. Super thin slivers of rich, fair trade dark chocolate combined with delicious salty or sweet add-ins. The company uses only Fair Trade Certified chocolate, which guarantees the cocoa bean farmers who they purchase from are getting a fair price, following good agricultural practices, and investing in their farms and communities. All of the ingredients are also in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard, ensuring the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance.
So Many Choices!
barkTHINS come in seven flavors:
Dark Chocolate Almond with Sea Salt
Dark Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt
Dark Chocolate Mint with Sea Salt
Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed with Sea Salt
Blueberry Quinoa with Agave
Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut with Almonds
Dark Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel with Sea Salt
It was tough to choose out of the many different combinations but we settled on Dark Chocolate Mint and Blueberry Quinoa for our tasting.
Usually when I ask my kids to try something they suspect it’s a new vegetable and are not always receptive. I’m sure they thought I had somehow mixed broccoli into this chocolate but they certainly didn’t mind trying it. This was not a hard sell, they loved both flavors.
And the VERDICT is:
Matthew (age 7): “I think the mint is deeeelicious”
Dylan (age 5): “Oh so yummy” “I like the mint better A LOT”
Liam (age 5): “I like ‘em both but mint a tiny tiny bit better”
Dark Chocolate Mint was the clear favorite… And all three requested I put a piece in their lunchboxes this week!
