In Search of Unprocessed Chocolate Bars

I like good chocolate and I know I'm in good company. I don't want to go without during October Unprocessed, so I went to Whole Foods today and read the labels. I walked away with four bars. 

  1. Amore di Mona Chocolate with Currants $3.49 -- cocoa, butter, cocoa solids, raw organic agave nectar and dried currants
  2. Sweet Riot Pure 85% Dark Chocolate $3.99 -- organic chocolate liquor, organic cocoa butter. organic cocoa, organic cane sugar, organic vanilla extract
  3. Alter Eco Dark Quinoa Organic Chocolate $3.99 -- cocoa beans, raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, quinoa-rice crisps,vanilla beans (Tastes like rice crispies in good dark chocolate. Got good marks from Lisa Leake at 100 Days of Real Food.) 
  4. Green & Black's Organic 85% Cacao Bar $3.99 -- organic chocolate, organic cocoa butter, organic cocoa, organic raw cane sugar, organic vanilla extract
I know the sugar is still not ideal, but at least none of these bars has soy lecithin like my favorite Chocolove Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate bar. I'm still searching for my some little chocolate pieces to have on hand for my fellow October Unprocessed participants when they hit the 3:00 slump. If you've found any, please let me know.
