These suckers make a serious doobie/blunt-powered munch food. No sugar shakes; just mellow, earth tones across a burning spice (if 5% minoxidil had the same effect as this 5% ginger, baldness could be cured forever - that's how scalp-tingling it is). Makes you go all Mayan & Chinese Shang dynasty… tripping back thru cacáo + ginger's history (word to all time-traveling stoners: try melding those 2 cultures together). Serve with a good dark rum & you're all there.

Flavor   44.1 / 50
ginger just kicks, followed on by sugar (not too sweet) -> impressive raw chocolate thunder... tremendously deep earth tones generated by strong carmelized action -> ginger burn opposite good cocoa liquor balance
Quality   17.8 / 20
Great change of pace from over-processed, over-sweetened, I-have-to-feed-my-ego-by-futzing with-a-great-bean-to-put-my-name-on-it chocolaters.

Ginger is, however, hyper-expressed (bright lightning & hot as the lone sun in Chinese mythology after Archer Yi extinguished the other 9 of them) but kept in check by great chocolate backbone creating fine palate juxtaposition between smooth & crunch, heat & base.
