Mecsa Osha Peruvian Jungle Chocolate 75%

This chocolate bar is produced from cacao beans from Peru, and is Fair Trade chocolate (meaning the local producers get paid more for their beans) and Organic. Mecsa Osha means "Sleeping Beauty" and refers to a mountain in the jungle of Peru where the beans are produced. The cacao content of this bar is at 75%. The ingredient listing is fairly good, cocoa liquor, cocoa powder, cane sugar, cocoa butter and soy lecithin.

How does it taste? Not that good, fairly chalky, and the bar was quite hard, ie. it took a fair amount of strength to break (though the bar was certainly thicker and thus less wide than other bars, so that probably was the reason why). This bar was about $3 from a health food store. I don't know if I would buy this again.
