Valentine’s Day is over and all that is left is the love in your heart and the empty chocolate wrappers and boxes. In my home, chocolate is the gift of choice – loved by young and old alike. It was shortly before Valentine’s Day that I discovered a particularly tasty chocolate treat. Better yet, it is not even a dessert, but a “snacking chocolate.”
Enter barkTHINS, with its mix of sweet and salty ingredients. Imagine replacing that recipe for Christmas bark with grade-A chocolate and then pouring it on some of the best ingredients – that is what barkTHINS are like. This delicious snacking chocolate blends slivers of dark chocolate with America’s favorite snacking ingredients and hints of sea salt, creating a treat that is Non-GMO Project Verified, Fair Trade Ingredient Certified and contains no artificial colors or flavors.
Flavors that I have seen and tried so far are:
- Dark Chocolate Mint
- Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed
- Blueberry Quinoa with Agave
- Dark Chocolate Almond
- Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut
- Dark Chocolate Pretzel
According to the website, there are more to come and looks like even some holiday flavors.
Now I know that the thought of gourmet snacking chocolate sounds pretentious. I took tons of ribbing when I pulled these out during a Super Bowl party. However when folks starting gobbling up my “fancy candy,” they stopped with the snide remarks. Instead they talked about how great it tasted and how filling it was.

Disclosure: I received a few bags from a third-party for trial purposes.
