Chocolate Spotlight: Alter Eco Dark Quinoa Organic Chocolate Bar

 

 
Snap and crackle get a nutritious pop with a hearty sprinkling of our puffed royal pearl quinoa. This ancient Bolivian superfood lends its satisfying crunch, gentle nutty flavor, and all nine amino acids to our deep, malty Ecuadorian dark chocolate. Raw cane sugar and Madagascar bourbon vanilla bean finish a classic recipe with pure flavor.

The smooth intensity of Dark Quinoa reflects the rainforest from which it hails. Fortaleza sits at the edge of the Ecuadorian coast, where the world’s richest soil and the shade of the forest canopy create an ideal environment for native cacao.
