Summary:

Above and beyond in quality, these "traditionally-sized" chocolate bites are certified organic, fair trade, kosher parve, vegan, non-GMO, and produced in a gluten-free top allergen-free facility. But most importantly, they have an amazing, rich, pure taste. The milky semi-sweet is rich with a cocoa liquor flavor, the 85% offering alluring depth of flavor without too much better, and the 100% unsweetened are in a versatile league of their own.

I can hear the delighted gasps now, “Chocolate without dairy AND soy?! Not even soy lecithin?” Indeed, Pascha organic chocolate chips are the purest I’ve ever seen.

Pascha Organic Chocolate Chips - Semi-Sweet, Bitter-Sweet, and Unsweetened (Non-GMO, Fair Trade, Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Free of Top Allergens)

Not only are Pascha organic chocolate chips dairy-free and soy-free, they’re also certified fair trade, vegan, kosher parve, non-GMO verified, have full ingredient trace-ability, and are made in a facility free of gluten and top allergens. Pascha chocolate bars possess all of these wonderful properties, too, but I’m a chip fanatic. They can be tossed into recipes (like cookies or even shakes!), melted with ease, and are perfect for snacking.

And unlike many ordinary brands, Pascha organic chocolate chips come in three varieties:

55% Semi-Sweet – These perfectly-sized bites are almost milky in flavor and consistency, but with a rich cocoa liquor vibe. These are currently my favorite sweet delight for snacking on out of hand. (Used in this recipe: Chocolate Pumpkin Butter Cups)

85% Bitter-Sweet – This is a fantastic deep dark chocolate for true cacao fans. They have just the right amount of sweetness for noshability (I think this should be a new word, no?), but also make a nice not-to-sweet, contrasting addition for cookies and truffles. (Pictured below, and also what I used in these recipes: Cheerful Cherry Chocolate Chip ShakeChocolate Pumpkin Butter Cups)

100% Unsweetened – These chips are a pure dark, with an expected slight bitter aftertaste, yet are surprisingly smooth overall. Fantastic for baking, when you want to use your own sweetener option, or for true cacao purists (this variety is paleo, I believe). (Used in these recipes: Chocolate Banana Monkey Pops, Pure Chocolate Truffle Snacks)
