Lately, I have become enamored with Taza Chocolate. When I first tried stone ground chocolate, I was not entirely sure that I liked it. Yet, something about the unrefined cacao bits and cane sugar kept me coming back. The texture that they provide certainly is intriguing and quite different on the palate than other chocolates. So, now I find myself craving the sweet, rich and gritty selections crafted by Taza from time to time.
Picking up on my latest obsession, my husband slipped a Taza Ginger Chocolate Mexicano treat in my stocking for Christmas. I was pretty excited to find this delight in my stocking since I have started to really enjoy chocolate covered ginger. Taza's packaging is unassuming yet elegant enough to recognize that you are about to dive into an artisan chocolate. I love that it isn't flashy!
Each package of Taza contains two disks. The disks in turn can be broken into 8 pieces. I love this because it is easy to sneak a little bite of chocolate. I am all about portion control! These disks make it easy!
I found this version of Taza to be just the right amount of sweet blended with a rich cacao. The ginger provided an intriguing bite which is really what stayed on my palate. The bite was satisfying enough that I did not feel like I needed more than my little wedge. Sometimes when you enjoy chocolate, one bite entices you to have another. Now, I definitely could have eaten more. However, I was able to stop at the one wedge and feel satisfied.
If you have not tried Taza before, definitely give it a try. The company stays true to traditional Mexican chocolate methods include using authentic Oaxacan stone mills. What an exotic little treat! Plus, the chocolate is fair trade and Taza works to help its farmers and their communities. I love when companies give back!
