This organic, fair-trade certified chocolate is my go-to treat.
I didn’t know quality chocolate until I tried Theo® Chocolate at the Theo Factory in May 2015. My husband and I went on a tour of the factory in Seattle, and almost every month since, we've purchased this chocolate.
It’s organic, fair-trade certified and made from scratch, and there are several 70% dark chocolate options. It checked all my boxes.
My favorites are:
Sea Salt Dark Chocolate
Dark Chocolate Salted Almond

During the tour, my husband chewed the chocolate samples so fast that he couldn’t taste the difference in flavors, but I did. I mindfully savored every piece. Some had floral notes, some had almond notes.
Fast forward five years, and I typically eat one or two squares at least a few times a week, so a full bar will last me a few days to a week.
Check out the chocolate on the Theo Chocolate website. This chocolate makes a great gift for yourself or anyone who loves dark chocolate.
Practice It: Savor Every Decadent Bite
Take a square of this dark chocolate and bite into it mindfully. Allow each piece to melt in your mouth. Close your eyes for a few bites and see if your sense of taste is heightened. If you’re satisfied with one square, stop there. If you want another square, repeat this practice.
