70% Dark Chocolate with Blueberries and 70% Dark Chocolate with Almonds
- 70% Dark Chocolate with Blueberries- The blues buster. Dark 70% cacao brightened with blueberry chunks
- 70% Dark with Roasted Almonds- The old school pairing- Crunchy almonds and smooth dark chocolate. It's the friend for all seasons
- 70% Dark with Cranberry & Bhut Jholokia Chilli- Bhut jholokia chili adds just enough sting to the tanginess of the cranberries. If you like dark chocolate with a little heat, this one's for you!
Interesting combinations and good quality dark chocolate.
I’m so delighted that we have an Indian chocolate brand who is making high quality vegan dark chocolate. Being vegan makes the chocolate more bitter (which I love) so people looking for lesser bitter taste I’ll suggest go for lower percentage than 70%. Loved the flavours and the balance of taste. Looking forward to try out more flavours from Darkins.
Quantity is too less
As per the advertising, it seems like the product is really something different. However, the chocolate bars are very thin and the dark flavour comes across as more bitter than 70%. In the cranberry and chilli chocolate the cranberry is salty and does not balance the spice of the chilli and bitterness of the chocolate at all. It would be nice if you they can bring in more options in terms of the level(%) of darkness for people to choose from. It is overpriced for what they offer.
while the toppings are good but chocolate quality is not that great
Quality & Direct Farm Trade
We work directly with farmers to grow and improve the quality of cacao. Our beans are sourced directly from Coastal Andhra estates- practicing natural farming- and crafted into chocolate bars at our kitchen in Delhi.
Natural, Vegan and Gluten Free
We like to keep it simple and pure. The main ingredients in our chocolates are cacao beans, raw sugar, and cacao butter. We don’t use any emulsifiers, flavors or additives.
Our cacao grows in the Eastern Ghats of India near the Godavari river basin - mainly from three regions Eluru, Pollachi and Puttur. Every bean in a bar comes from a single-origin, thus ensuring the unique flavor profile of that region stays intact.
We hand-sort the beans, roast them, winnow, refine, conche, and temper all our chocolate in the micro factory. Then carefully handcraft it in individual batches, using only the finest ingredients.
Bean to Bar
Darkins is a premium Bean-to-Bar dark chocolate maker on a journey to create Indian-origin artisan chocolates with a focus to promote healthy food.
We deal directly with cocoa farmer helping on how the beans are to be treated from the moment they’re harvested and ensuring the best possible quality and price for cocoa farmers in Andhra Pradesh.
The care, skill and attention to detail of everyone involved in making the chocolate is what makes it special. It doesn’t just taste good, it does good.
We started Darkins to celebrate Indian cacao- its terroir, acidity and undertones. To create a brand of Indian chocolates that excels in combining the finest Indian cacao and flavors. To decouple fine from foreign. We at Darkins strive for chocolate that not just tastes good but does good. We hope that you appreciate the artisanship and love that goes into creating your Darkins bars.
