Pascha Chocolate Bars aren’t just Black and White

5

They started out with a pure, free-from, dark chocolate formula. But over the years, Pascha Chocolate has populated their collection with a diverse group of dark and rice milk varieties. Their vegan chocolate bar options range from Black with 100% cacao to creamy White with 48% cacao.

Pascha Chocolate Bars Tasting Notes & Information

We’ve tried a handful of Pascha Chocolate Bars, and I’ve included our notes with the corresponding varieties below. We still haven’t tried their white chocolate, dairy-free milk chocolate, or sugar-free flavors. Be sure to leave your own rating and review below if you try any of the following!

48% Cacao Vegan White Chocolate Alternative

Their vegan white chocolate is also available in smaller bars and as chocolate chips.

55% Cacao Dark Chocolate

This is a very milky semi-sweet, but without a speck of milk (of any kind). Our resident teenager agreed that this was an impressive dairy-free find. And even more excited to learn that it was peanut- and nut-safe. This chocolate is also available as chocolate chips.

55% Cacao Organic Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs

Cacao nibs are usually a give or take thing for me, but I really liked this Pascha Chocolate bar. The sweet creamy chocolate generously dotted with crunchy bittersweet cacao was a heavenly dessert-like treat.

70% Cacao Organic Dark Chocolate

Pascha kept the smooth and creamy consistency with this bar, but the 70% cacao shines through with a hint of bitterness, particularly in the aftertaste. I loved the flavor, but confess that after savoring the 55% bars, this one was a little too sharp in cacao.

70% Cacao Dark Chocolate with Arabica Coffee

Coffee beans are typically categorized into two types: robusta and arabica. Arabica has approximately half as much caffeine as robusta and it tends to have a sweeter, softer taste with more fragrant notes. Some even say that the pleasant acidity of arabica gives it an underlying chocolaty flavor. This might explain why I actually liked this Pascha Chocolate bar even though I’m far from a coffee fan. The coffee taste is pure and potent, but a little more complex than most other java desserts.

85% Cacao Organic Dark Chocolate

Seventy percent is usually as high in cacao as my taste buds like to go, but, this was pretty good for a super-dark. And contrary to my expectations, there wasn’t a strong bitter aftertaste. The texture did have a slight powdery feel intermixed with the creamy backdrop and this was without a doubt a dark bar. But I could see fans among the pure cacao loving population. This chocolate is also available as chocolate chips.

Top 8-free chocolate

5.0 rating
February 11, 2020

This chocolate far exceeded my expectations. Despite being both dairy-free and soy-free, it’s some of the smoothest, creamiest dark chocolate I’ve ever tasted. It’s a little expensive for my regular chocolate budget (we eat a lot of chocolate in our house!), but I think it’s worth buying on sale or if you need a good allergy-friendly chocolate option.

  4. Finally-a much needed product. And the fact that it’s made in a peanut free facility will probably lead to a shortage. I don’t see any retailers carrying it yet.
