Go Darker with this 45% Milk Chocolate by Theo
Most milk chocolate bars that are available at national grocers and convenience stores have less than 28% cocoa solids. Some good ones have between 28% and 38% - you can usually find organic brands with these percentages. But the really good ones, which are less sweet, but so much creamier because of their high cocoa butter content, are made by bean-to-bar chocolate makers who focus on taste and quality.
Theo Chocolate is one such producer: they offer a 45% milk chocolate bar that is very creamy and cocoa buttery. What's more, this chocolate bar also happens to be both Organic and Fair Trade. And there is no soy lecithin in this product.
So if you are a milk chocolate lover, but you are looking to reduce your sugar intake, Theo's dark-milk chocolate is definitely worth a try! I loved it.
I found this chocolate bar at the Bulk Barn in Canada. Theo Chocolate is American-made in Seattle, WA. To learn more, check out their website at: www.theochocolate.com. You can also purchase this chocolate bar online.
