The Best of Both Worlds

The name’s a mouthful, but it’s all about mouthfeel with Alter Eco’s fair-trade chocolate bar, which has the smooth texture of milk chocolate and the rich, bitter flavor of dark chocolate. “A touch of milk” is the key to the silkiness (at least they cop to it), while organic cacao from the El Ceibo cooperative in Bolivia gets credit for the rest.
