Newman’s Own Chocolate Reviews
It is, like the name says, sweet. Too sweet. The first ingredient is sugar, not chocolate liquor, which always makes us wonder how “dark” the chocolate could be. Sugar would be an ingredient we’d expect to see first on a milk chocolate bar, but this doesn’t have any milky smoothness to redeem it. Extra credit given for organic ingredients.

Sweet Dark Orange Dark Chocolate
The orange oil in this masks the inferior chocolate flavor just enough to give this a higher rating than its counterpart, the plain Sweet Dark. There is a bit of an unpleasantly sweet aftertaste, but it’s good enough to get a decent chocolate fix, and we like that it’s organic, of course.
