Fruit and caramel warm undertones lure you into a luxuriously smooth, rich finish.
Our signature bar, the Ecuadorian Pure Arriba Nacional 70% cacao bar is a multi-faceted experience. The natural occuring flavors of this heirloom cacao are the focus of this delightful dark chocolate.
The Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional 70% cacao was selected from rigorous blind taste testing due to it's beautiful consistency contrasted with a complex balance of flavors. Our fine chocolate nuances take the palate on a ride through changing flavors of fruit, floral, and caramel, while lingering on your palate long after the bar has melted on your tongue.

Editing my Prior Review....

My original review is on the site.
So, another bar I purchased this past week was Soma's (based in Canada) Peru Nacional 70% bar. This bar recently won Canadian Gold, America's Silver and World Bronze in the 2014 International Chocolate Awards.
Millcreek's 70% bar is every bit as deep and rich and complex and smooth and creamy and still light drifts heavenly towards its finish.
I get nothing by adding this to my review except perhaps more competition to buy these same bars...which I have a reserve stash of.
I have just seen so many ridiculous 5 star reviews of chocolate is just nowhere near what this tastes like. For those who know me, I complain a lot, am my own and the world's biggest critic, but when something is done like this I just lay down the hammer, genuflect and thank the heavens I found something this good.
It's nearly 11 pm and I'm still at work, but, my night is fulfilled as I had some of this while I was here.
Let me just say this....

I am obsessed with my dark chocolate. I have bought it from all over and am VERY VERY particular. This got recommended to me in LA at Monsieur Marcel. The proprietor there made a comment something like, "when we got a sample, we were driving, and had to immediately pull over to the side of the road to call and find out how they made it."
I remember thinking..."Yeah, yeah, yeah...whatever."
In sum, this chocolate bar has one of the most incredibly delicious, layered flavors of chocolate with a finish that is absolutely unreal. In fact, every time I take a bite, (and I rotate what I have in any one evening), I enter the bite just as skeptical each time. Each time, I am blown away. The above reaction from Monsieur Marcel is truly real.
I have no idea how you create this bar but it is truly spectacular and one-of-a-kind.
I have 8 in reserve as I write this.
Never stop making this. Enough said.
