Barks are poured in a large pan and then broken up into various sized pieces. All the ingredients are immersed in our chocolate to insure goodness in every single bite! Our chocolate is free of hydrogenated oils and contains no artificial flavors or colors. Once again there has to be a perfect balance with not one of the ingredients taking center stage – all of them have to meld together to create the perfect taste. Each bite has to achieve this! With over 25 years of testing (just think how many test bites that is) we can tell you that we are there! Each and every piece is packed full! Gluten Free.
