Dagoba Chocolate

by Josh Johnson

I’m sharing DAGOBA in my life as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars.

On my latest run to Target that find looked a lot like nabbing the entire selection of DAGOBA chocolate bars. I mean, it is the holidays after all, and what I don’t end up eating/using in a recipe will make for the perfect gift. Right?

Anyways, I’ve managed to sample essentially every one – like Picante Chocolate, Extra Dark, and Ginger Lime. But hands down my favorite has to be Raspberry Mint. The mint and raspberry really helps to mellow out the sweetness of the white chocolate in the perfect way. Already thinking of a few ways to each of the above in a recipe (or two) that’ll be coming to the blog later this month. Most excited about huge dark chocolate chunks in my chocolate chip cookies though. That’ll be topped with a generous helping of flaky sea salt and maybe some pretzels. Kitchen sink cookies anyone?! Mother is watering just thinking about how delicious AND addicting those guys will end up. So stay tuned.

If chocolate doesn’t call to you like it does me though, you’re still in luck. Because their bars make for the perfect gifts. How? Because they’re not only delicious, but they’re also a gift you can feel good about giving. In 2016 DAGOBA Organic established One for All Cacao Project. Their mission is to strengthen cacao communities by advancing the role of women in cocoa production worldwide. And as most of y’all know – projects like this are extra near and dear to my heart. Not to mention all their chocolate is made from organic, Rainforest Alliance Certified™, non-GMO Project Verified beans sourced only from small cacao farms. In other words, what’s not to love? 

So what are you waiting for? These bars are only available at your local Targets, and trust me when I say you’re going to want to snag a few. A few for yourself (because treat yo’self), a few for your friends and family, and a few to use in a recipe that I’ll be sharing here soon.
