  • Not Quite Ready for 100% Cacao

    I have been enjoying my 90% Lindt. Yesterday took a trip to Whole Foods and discovered they carried 100% Ghiradelli so I bought a bar and tried a couple squares this morning. Whew, not quite ready for that just yet. Had to wash it down with a couple 90% squares.

    My maths tells me you ended up eating 95% So very close to that 100%

      I don't understand this goal of 100%. What is this milestone for you?

      I stay with the 72!

            This may sound crazy, but if you put a little salt or mild chilli on your tongue before eating it you'll find it's a lot less bitter

              72% won't kill you, but the disgusting taste of 100% might.

              Don't micromanage, life is too short.

                  I think nibs are even more delicious than 100% chocolate. Maybe give those a shot?

                      Try Scharffen Berger's 99% bar. It's pretty good! Also anything from Amano is wonderful, especially their Occumare cacao nibs. If you can chomp cacao nibs happily, you're ready for 100% bars.

                        Buy some 100% cacao powder and mix it in with your protein powder drink. Very healthy and tasty without the bitterness!

                          I didn't know chocolate (especially in a bar form) was paleo, isn't it processed food?

                              These are the benefits of cocoa bean, why should I subject myself to eating processes food this article doesn't explain.
