A Tasty Treat: A Scharffen Berger Nibby Dark Chocolate (62% Cacao) Bar Review
Dec 24, 2011
As a chef and all around foodie, I jumped at the chance to try out the Scharffen Berger nibby dark chocolate bars. Scharffen Berger, a contemporary artisan chocolate maker from the United States, has created eight different flavors including the nibby dark chocolate bars. Based on this item's description, I expected something to rival fine European chocolate.
The packaging is plain and understated, providing more of an image associated with melting chocolate. Don't let the packaging fool you, this bar is meant to enjoy as is. The chocolate itself is somewhat sweeter than expected for dark chocolate, but still retains a rich dark chocolate flavor. Nibby bits, small bits of roasted cacao, add a crunchy texture reminiscent of chocolate covered coffee beans but with less concentration. I can see where the nibby bits might not be for everyone; however I like the added texture.
If you're looking for domestic fine chocolate, it can be found with Scharffen Berger's nibby dark chocolate bar. I can't wait to try the other seven favors. If you enjoy chocolate covered coffee beans and fine chocolates, the Scharffen Berger Nibby Dark Chocolate is sure to please.
PROS: Fine dark chocolate rivals European options Rich smooth tasting chocolate Cacao nibs add pleasing texture
CONS: I haven't tried the other 7 flavors yet.
