The Dick Taylor Belize Toledo Dark Chocolate Bar, with 2 ingredients: 72% cacao and cane sugar, has one of the most gorgeous imprints in the world of craft chocolate. It is smooth with a nicely measured melt, and complex with a rich cocoa flavor highlighted by raisin and tart cherry notes. You’ll also find notes of vanilla, biscuit, licorice, mahogany, earth, mango and toffee. This bar almost has a “goth” vibe, thanks to the dark fruit notes. It is deep and mysterious but also possesses a distinct brightness that offers balance and harmony.

Adam Dick and Dustin Taylor are friends who together created Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate in 2010. These two love to work with their hands and have a background in woodworking and boat building. The concept of "craft" has always been a guiding principle in their lives and they found themselves drawn to the similarity between building with wood and crafting artisanal chocolate directly from the bean.
Adam and Dustin continue to build their business and craft their chocolate with the same values that inspired them years ago. Relying on the finest fairly-traded organic cacao and organic cane sugar, they are purists who refuse to add cocoa butter or other emulsifiers when making their delicious dark chocolate. Their goal is to capture and highlight the subtle flavor nuances in the cacao they source from all over the globe.
Dick Taylor is among the 13 favorite USA craft chocolate producers recognized in Melissa Clark's February 2020 New York Times article for the extra attention their team devotes to sourcing beans, forging positive relationships with growers and treating the planet with extra loving care.
