When you first try an Xtasy bar you will notice it tastes bright and has a different texture. This difference comes from having minimally processed ingredients. The cacao is a raw premium varietal, sourced from the Guayas River Basin in Ecuador, and is cherished for it’s superior flavor. The bar’s texture is not silky smooth, and this is because to achieve that silkiness, one has to grind the finished chocolate for many hours under intense shearing forces, and this shearing process changes the chocolate’s taste and chemistry.
The coconut sugar particles are also larger, which changes how you experience the relationship between the cacao and the sugar. You will find you can enjoy a higher percentage of cacao, like a 95% Xtasy bar, and still find its sweetness. This is due to the larger sugar particle size.
