This 100% dark chocolate is pure and showcases the natural origin flavours of the cocoa beans. It is very low in acidity and therefore very palatable compared to other 100% dark chocolate bars, with a sweet fruity taste and roasted cocoa flavours. Handcrafted from bean to bar on Manitoulin Island, where we sort, roast, winnow, and grind the beans for 48 hours into smooth chocolate, and lovingly mold the chocolate into bars then hand wrapping each one.
Ultimately Chocolate's owner, Lisabeth Flanagan, developed a passion for chocolate at a very young age. That passion intensified when she spent a year in France and began to see the world of chocolate and desserts with new eyes. Many hours were spent in chocolatier’s shops in every city she visited to discover as much about European chocolate as she could.
Since then, Lisabeth has spent endless hours recreating the best desserts that she tasted in Europe, studying and reviewing chocolate for The Ultimate Chocolate Blog, working with couverture chocolate to make confections and learning to make bean-to-bar chocolate. When she and her family moved to Manitoulin Island in 2008, she saw a need in Northern Ontario for top quality and richly delicious chocolate & desserts. With a bachelor of commerce degree and a Masters in International Business, where she focused her studies on food marketing, she decided it was time to turn her passion for chocolate into a new career.
Ultimately Chocolate’s signature product, the chocolate TOFFLE(TM), was created because of Lisabeth’s love of chocolate truffles, a passion for organic and Fair Trade chocolate and a need to introduce her own secret recipe for rich, dark chocolate toffee to the world. The TOFFLE(TM) is a treat that truly satisfies the cravings of both milk and dark chocolate lovers.
