Fodor's Review

The small Grenada Chocolate Company, founded in 1999, initially produced its now-famous chocolate bars in a small house-turned-factory in the village of Hermitage. Now the chocolate bars are produced in alliance with the nearby Belmont Estate cocoa farm and fermentary. Employees use antique machinery powered by solar energy to roast cocoa beans supplied by a local cooperative of growers representing more than 150 acres of organic cocoa farms—the largest of which is Belmont Estate. They mix and temper small batches of rich, dark chocolate that are then molded and wrapped by hand into high-quality, organic chocolate bars (cocoa powder and cocoa butter are also available). The 82% chocolate bar was awarded the silver medal in 2011 by the London Academy of Chocolate. Buy the candy bars at Belmont Estate or in supermarkets or gift shops for about $6 each.
