Aztecs considered chocolate "the food of the gods," and while it may be difficult to imagine omnipotent beings munching their way through a bag of Hershey Kisses some chocolate seems fit to titillate even godly palettes. If you're after a sublime cacao experience look no further than Madécasse chocolate. Produced from "bean to bar" in Madagascar this chocolate has a complex, bold taste that cannot be manufactured or created. There are four dark varieties to choose from: 63, 67, 70 or 75 percent cacao. The 70% proved to be our favorite - it is smooth and rich with a delicate, but unmistakable, hint of cherry. Madécasse is what chocolate should be - pure, delicious, divine.
