Vosges Chocolate Matcha Bar

An image of a Vosges Matcha Bar in its packaging.I couldn’t resist picking this bar up on a recent trip to Whole Foods. I don’t see it listed on Vosges’ site so I’m not entirely certain that it is still being made. As would be expected, Vosges touts the health benefits and antioxidant levels of matcha. At 45% cacao, I would have thought that this bar would taste like milk chocolate but the green tea added a new level of richness that made it taste like a much darker chocolate. Although the matcha wasn’t really discernable in the flavor profile, this still hit the spot for a chocoholic like myself. It was a bit pricy but definitely worth a try if you are a lover of tea and chocolate.
