TCHO Organic 99% Unsweetened Baking Drops 8oz Bag

Perfect for baking, cooking – and snacking! 99% cacao is composed of remarkable organic, fair trade cacao from both Ecuador and Peru. Lacking the typical bitterness and astringency found in unsweetened chocolate, this blend is insanely rich and chocolatey, accented with subtle roasted nut undertones and a slight hint of figs and espresso. This is the taste of pure cacao - no added flavors or sugar.
Ingredients: cacao beans.

It would be really cool if you could link from your products to any recipes that might call for it as an ingredient.  I picked up a bag of these at the store assuming they would be edible, but they are a tad bitter for my taste.  Recipes?

Asked by: Paul
Hello, We do have a recipe section on our website. I am linking to our Chocolate Espresso Cookie recipe at which includes the 99% chocolate you have mentioned. On the left hand side you will see other recipes as well. Hope this helps! Best, TCHO Customer Service

Do the ingredients include any gluten, grains, dairy, corn, peanuts, rice, soy, sugar (sugar in any form or type), or artifical sweetners? Do the ingredients include any type of added fat (other than fat naturally occurring in cacao)?

Asked by: Pat T
There is no wheat or gluten in our 99%. Only our Strawberry Rhubarb Pie bar has wheat in it because of the pie crust. There is no dairy in our 99%. All of our milk chocolate product has dairy -Classic, Cacao, Mokaccino, Tchunky Tchotella, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and our Gelactic Gelato dark chocolate bar. No corn, no peanuts, no rice, no artificial sweeteners in any of our products. We use cane sugar in all our product that contains sugar- except nibs, cocoa powder, 99%. There is no soy lecithin in our 99%. Most of our products contain soy lecithin but the amount is very small, untraceable, it is used as emulsifier. We do not add any fat to our product other than cocoa butter-natural fat.

How much caffeine is in a serving of TCHO 99% dark chocolate critters? About how many critters are there per serving?

Asked by: Vanessa
Hello there, According to the Chocolate Information Center, sponsored by Mars Inc., a 50-gram piece of dark chocolate (about the size of your average chocolate bar) will yield between 10 and 60 milligrams of caffeine, while an average 150 ml cup of coffee can yield up to 175 milligrams. 40 grams of dark chocolate contains the same amount of caffeine as one cup of decaffeinated coffee, and yet it will stimulate sensitive individuals. A cup of hot chocolate usually contains about 4 or more milligrams of caffeine, which about 1/20 that of a cup of regular coffee. Hope that helps!

What is the other 1%? 

Asked by: stellamaris1031
Great question! It might be more appropriate to say 99.9% but that wouldn't look right on the bag... Though we thoroughly flush our equipment between products we produce there is a possibility of very trace amounts of other ingredients incidentally occurring, so that is why we can't say 100%.

How many sugars and carbohydrates are in the 99% 8oz package of dark chocolate> Thanks

Asked by: Jeff
We use a serving size of 20 grams for the 99% critters. In a 20g serving, there is 1 gram of sugar (which is naturally occurring, we do not add sugar to the 99%), and 6 grams of carbohydrates all together. There are roughly 11 servings in an 8 ounce package.
