Gaia Dark Chocolate Drops

This organic chocolate product from the California chocolatier The San Francisco Chocolate Factory is also Fair Trade certified, meaning the growers of the cacao receive a better price when selling their cacao beans. This is a Dark chocolate, though there is no indication of the cacao content; I would suspect that the cacao content is above the minimum 50% that allows it to be called Dark. The ingredient listing is good, all ingredients are organic, sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin (as an emulsifier) and vanilla.

How do they taste? Fairly good, a little sweet, likely as the main ingredient is sugar, but smooth and melts well in the mouth. The chocolate comes in small drops and cost about $5.
