Brooklyn Born Chocolate's Review

When you think of chocolate, you may be thinking about that candy bar, by the check out register in the grocery store. But real chocolate is made by a chocolatier, and is made with cacao, meaning bean to bar.

The company Brooklyn Born Chocolate, product creations are made by such, a chocolatier. Their chocolate bars are made with simple and fine ingredients, and with Tumbador chocolate. The Paleo line of chocolate bars are made with simple ingredients, and USDA certified chocolate. The chocolate bars are unprocessed, vegan, paleo, and have no additives what so ever.

Jean-Francois Bonnet is the Executive pastry Chef, behind these amazing chocolate creations. From a small town in France, he always had the passion for pastry. And it paid off, because in 2005 and in 2006, he was listed among Dessert Professional Magazine as one of the top ten pastry Chefs in America. Pretty impressive!

Now everyone can taste his wonderful creations, that he so passionately creates. These confections are not only blends of exotic fruits, spices, and herbs, but have all American ingredients like peanuts, crispy rice, and graham crackers included. On the outside of the bars is a very exquisite design, that is very elegant, as are the flavors.

The designs of the luxury chocolates are in a league of their own, apart from other chocolate. Creating partnerships with boutique's, hotels, resorts, and major corporations, and gourmet markets as well. Their private label chocolates are wonderful welcoming sweets, for all hospitality services.

And if you have a special event coming up, you can even choose to design your very memorable souvenir. Including logo's, artwork, and your own personalized text. They have every thing they need to make your custom favors stunning.

The company is also community based, believing that staff is as special and diverse as its products. There are many members of the Tumbador chocolate family that are given a second chance through community based programs, such as Goodwill and The Fortune Society. You can learn more at

From Rahway, NJ, my home state, I have the honor of tasting these amazing Brooklyn Born Chocolates, that have been recognized by The Wall Street Journal, Grub Street, The New York Times, and so many more.

The first set of chocolate bars for my family and I to taste, are from the Brooklyn Born Keto selection. These wonderful tasting, and delicious keto bars are made with either dark chocolate or milk chocolate. So that our palates do not get overwhelmed, we will taste a small piece of each chocolate bar. Tasting them like fine wine, slowly and taking a break, so that we can continue without losing the ability to savor the unique blends.

Up first, is the Brooklyn Born Keto chocolate bar, coconut milk. This bar is made with milk chocolate. Created, with 40 percent milk chocolate, and lightly toasted coconut milk and a nice hint of vanilla bean. And to get the sweetness, it is done so naturally using Monk fruit. Monk fruit sweeteners, are made from Monk Fruit extract. This exact is sweeter then sugar, but has zero calories, zero carbohydrates, zero sodium, and zero fat. The other premium ingredients include: organic cacao butter, organic coconut powder, organic tapioca fiber, organic cacao liquor, organic chia seeds, organic monk fruit extract, organic vanilla, sea salt. Now it is important to remember, these are fine quality pure chocolate bars, not your grocery store products. They may require you to get a taste for them, but once you do, you will never turn back. The texture is not grainy at all, and the chocolate just melts in your mouth. The sweetness is so perfect, not under or over. They are a very tasty indulgent for any chocolate craving.

The next tasting of Brooklyn Born Chocolates, is their dark chocolate Himalayan sea salt flavor. This is a dark chocolate at 70 percent, then creating a sweet and salty taste, with Himalayan sea salt. Also, for the natural sweetness, Monk fruit  was used again. The premium ingredient list consist of : organic dark chocolate, organic cacao liquor, organic tapioca fiber, organic cacao butter, organic monk fruit extract, organic vanilla, sea salt, organic lemon oil, organic coffee beans, sea salt. The dark chocolate bar is very low in fat, so it makes a great treat for everyone. The wonders of having chocolate with Himalayan sea salt are just amazing. And the fact that these are Keto, bars is even more amazing. It is very easy to become obsessed with all these bars, that is how fantastic the flavors are. The balance of the sat to the chocolate is in perfect balance. Brooklyn Born Chocolates was able to create an impeccable tasting bar with this combo.

Moving on is the Brooklyn Born Chocolate, Lemon Coffee flavor, a first for my family and I. This bar is also dark chocolate of 70 percent. Made with, organic dark chocolate,  organic cacao liquor, organic tapioca fiber, organic cacao butter, organic monk fruit extract, organic vanilla, sea salt, organic lemon oil, organic coffee beans, sea salt. The flavor profile, of mixing lemon and coffee, is truly delightful. Did you know if you hold your nose while tasting a piece of fine chocolate, you can really identify the sweetness. Sounds silly but it works. The texture of this bar, is not grainy, but very smooth. There is no bitterness at all from the coffee, purely a wonderful creamy bar with exquisite elements.

Now for those who love chocolate and mint, this next bar is for you. It is Brooklyn Born Keto chocolate bar with mint cacao nibs. The ingredient list is, organic dark chocolate,  organic cacao liquor, organic tapioca fiber, organic cacao butter, organic monk fruit extract, organic vanilla, sea salt, organic cacao nibs, organic peppermint oil. The chocolate percentage of this bar is 70 percent. You get the nice refreshing flavor of mint, with a hint of vanilla. The chocolate bar just melts so nice in your mouth. The notes of peppermint are deep, but yet smooth, and the bar has a nice natural gritty texture, with the nibs. If you don't know about nibs, they are cacao nibs that have been crushed up into pieces. The same bean that makes up the chocolate bar. You still get a nice sweet, not bitter taste when eating a piece.

The other ingredients that make up this wonderful bar are, organic dark chocolate, organic cacao liquor, organic tapioca fiber, organic cacao butter, organic monk fruit extract, organic vanilla, sea salt, organic toasted almond, sea salt. Almonds work so well with dark chocolate, and paired with the sea salt, you get such a exquisite melody of taste. This bar is also nice and smooth, with a little crunch. When you taste the bar, you not only see how well it was crafted, but taste it as well. There is no bitterness, and is great for you Chocoholics. The final experience tasting these Keto bars, was a true culinary adventure.

The melding of the dark chocolate, with coffee, is very complemented, it has a nice rich deep flavor profile. The chocolate percentage is 70 percent for this bar. It is not only smooth, but very decadent. A little fact is the high the percentage is of the cacao, the darker the chocolate, and the higher the flavonid antioxidants are. Even though being a dark chocolate, there is no bitterness to it. You get a true symphony in your mouth. The combo of the cacao also enhances the flavor of the hazelnuts, that your taste buds just fall in love with. You not only see the Hazelnut bits in the chocolate bar, there is plenty in there, to enjoy in every bite.
