Theobroma Chocolat Raspberry Chunks

Theobroma Chocolat is a Canadian chocolatier from Quebec; their philosophy is to use natural and pure, organic, ingredients that are rarely refined or converted, from sustainable agriculture. The cacao beans that they use are a mixture of Trinaterio and Forasterio from Africa and South American. This particular bar is at 60% cacao content, and is fairly expensive, I've seen it for $2 and also for over $3 for a 35 g thin bar (1/3 of a normal 100 g bar, which is about what I normally eat in a day). The ingredient listing is good and short, cocoa mass, sugar cane, cocoa butter, raspberry and soy lecithin (all but the lecithin are organic).

How did it taste? Fairly good tasting chocolate, with fresh tasting chunks of raspberry. The bar snapped well and smelled good. Despite its high price, I would occasionally like to eat this bar again.
