Salazon Chocolates - GIVEAWAY

Salazon Chocolate Company makes these beautiful bars of artisan chocolate. Dark, organic chocolate bars. Kosher, organic, vegan, and gluten free. Smooth chocolate with no after taste. The sea salt with black pepper is, sweet, salty and spicy. It's so good. My girls liked the original sea salt and the Turbinado sugar best. The girls and I LOVE dark chocolate. I hid the last bar, don't tell my family. But it's mine. To savor. By myself.  MMMM. No, I do not feel guilty. I found these locally at WholeFoods and had to contact the company. They are based in the same state I am in. They guys at Salazon Chocolate Co offered to sponsor a giveaway for some chocolate bars!

Salazon Chocolate Co makes their chocolates in the US, and each bar gets a hand sprinkling of their signature sea salt. Just the right amount. I love that they are part of the 1% for the planet. I love when companies are! You can read more about that HERE.  Straight from their webpage here is a little about them-

The Salazon Story
In the summer of 2009, Salazon Chocolate Co.’s founders were on a backpacking trip to Utah. They'd brought along the usual snacks - energy bars, trail mixes, and, for this trip, some organic dark chocolate bars. As they sat around the campfire that night, it struck them that a simple, salted-dark chocolate bar would be the perfect energy food. The idea for Salazon (Spanish for ‘salted’) was born. After visiting organic cacao farms in the Dominican Republic and perfecting the recipe (every bar is hand sprinkled), they launched Salazon Chocolate Co., the first salted-chocolate-based brand on the market.
Salazon’s chocolate bars are made from 100% organic, Rainforest Alliance–certified beans in small batches in the USA, and hand-sprinkled with natural, solar-evaporated sea salt.

There are four flavors that you can read about HERE. I also cut and paste information on the four varieties below.

Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Organic Turbinado Sugar Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Organic Turbinado Cane Sugar
Salazon Chocolate Co. does not make a milk chocolate but we did want to have a offering that was a little sweeter. Of course, we do it a little differently by sprinkling on a little organic turbinado cane sugar. This adds the texture that Salazon is known for and bit of extra sweetness to compliment the sea salt for one-of-a-kind chocolate bar. 

Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Organic Cracked Black Pepper
Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Organic Cracked Black Pepper

Our sea salt and organic cracked black pepper bar certainly invokes some raised eyebrows upon first glance, but this bar is fast becoming a fan favorite and our best seller. The organic black pepper balances the sea salt (naturally) and brings out different flavors in the chocolate than the salt can on its own.

Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Crushed Coffee
Salazon Chocolate co. introduces its newest premium, salted chocolate bar - Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt & Crushed Organic Coffee. This is chocolate and coffee in a way you’ve never tried, the Salazon way. The sea salt balances the course- ground coffee and produces a unique taste that we’ve been told is “enlightening”.
