When I was a little girl my grandmother says I used to come into her house and that no matter where she had hidden the chocolate I could find it. I was a chocoholic from a very young age.
I still believe that there is nothing better than a smooth, sweet, wonderful, creamy piece of chocolate in your mouth. Now, I like good chocolate, not your run of the mill things either. Organic chocolate has a flavor to it that is so much more pure than any other type of chocolate that I have ever eaten. Don’t get me wrong I will eat the non-organic chocolate, but I prefer organic.
Sjaak’s sent me an assortment of Easter chocolate goodies to try to to let you all know what I thought. They sent me three different things to check out, any of which would be a great addition to an Easter Basket or even be a great gift on their own!
This was an amazing piece, I love that they used two very different flavor profiles and put them together. The fruity gummy bears with the chocolate is really an amazing combination. Getting to the fruity bears was just as fun as eating them. It was just fabulous to get to the great fruity flavors that after eating the chocolate.
What can you possibly do wrong with these two flavors? I always have such a hard time trying to decide if I want caramel or peanut butter with my chocolate and the two by Sjaak’s Organic chocolate was another toss-up, both fantastic. Chocolate creamy and smooth, and the caramel was so decadent I could almost just eat it by the bowl full. I love a great caramel and the one thing that makes it better is fabulous chocolate to add to it.
I don’t know who first put peanut butter and chocolate together, but I would kiss them if I could. These two flavors just meld and blend in such a way that there is really no way to do them wrong. These came in a foil wrapped half chocolate egg that was as delicious as it was clever. I loved this. I loved this product as a gift for a teacher or a good friend that you may want to get something for. The peanut butter filling by Sjaak’s was so smooth and well, peanuty!
Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates aims to create the highest quality gourmet organic chocolates possible while simultaneously supporting a positive work environment, fair trade practices and encouraging sustainable agriculture through the use of organic, non-GMO ingredients. It is also the goal of Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates to build a socially responsible, profitable business that can be carried on for generations to come.The Sjaak’s Story began on the Southern beaches of Spain. This is where Jacques and Pam met and fell in love. They soon came back and settled in Eureka (northern ca.) where Pam had grown up. They began a Chocolate business that grew into a household name in their community. After years of building a thriving business, they realized that they needed to shift their attention to organic products. Being long time vegetarians (since 1970) and health conscious consumers themselves, they felt they needed their personal beliefs reflected in their business, thus the beginning of Sjaak’s Organic chocolates.)
