Vosges Haut-Chocolat Super Dark™ Super Foods + Dark Chocolate Coconut Ash & Banana -- 3 oz
If you're a fan of superdark, this is delicious. Nice texture. I don't care for bananas but this has small bits that aren't noticeably banana-ey... almost like specks of toasted coconut. Coconut ash is from activated coconut shell charcoal but no taste of ash/coal.. just a pleasant slight coconutty enhancement.
My 85-88% bars are my everyday... this will be in the treat category.

Surprising and Addicting
I tried the Vosges Chili Chocolate and rank it in my top two spicy dark chocolates, and I have tried many. I was therefore curious about other flavors in the Vosges brand. I doubt I would have tried the coconut ash and banana Vosges bar otherwise.
I'm not a particular fan of either banana or coconut and I had no idea of searching out coconut "ash." But wow. This chocolate is delicious- a sophisticated taste. I love it.
I insisted that my husband - a self-proclaimed foodie- try some. I did not disclose the ingredients. Interestingly, on first bite, he made a face, not in a good way. "Hmmm, kinda strange," he said. After a moment, he took a second taste and said the chocolate was "interesting." On third bite, his comment was- "this is REALLY good." Surprisingly, he could not initially identify banana as an ingredient, that took several more bites. We both now agree that this bar is one of our favorite dark chocolate indulgences.
