Ethiquable Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs

I have written about Fair Trade products before (paying local farmers fair prices, and making their farming sustainable - see Max Havelaar for International Standards of Fair Trade), this dark chocolate bar with cacao nibs by Ethiquable is made from Fair Trade cacao from the Dominican Republic. With 60% cacao content, it's ingredient listing is good, cocoa paste, cane sugar (also a Fair Trade product), cocoa bean nibs, cocoa butter, soya lecithin and artificial vanilla.

I first thought that this chocolate was off, as it has an earthy taste to it when I first bit into a square. Overall, it's quite tasty, the cocoa nibs enhance the chocolatey-ness.
