While Christopher Elbow chocolates are a perennial favorite in Kansas City, we sampled three other chocolate bars that wowed our taste buds.
Signature 70% Blend
This bar contains a high cocoa content and signals that it is serious about delivering a full-on chocolate experience. This flavor introduces citrus and berry highlights and notes of coffee and roasted nuts in the finish. Bars are available at Whole Foods (Metcalf and Overland Park) and The Better Cheddar (Prairie Village and Country Club Plaza). Patric Chocolate’s award-winning bars also come in several varieties including red coconut curry, mint and PB&J.
Premium Dark Chocolate Bar
Notes: 3.5 ounces of rich, smooth, dark chocolate. With 56% cocoa, the flavor is rich and decadent without the bitterness of high-cocoa content chocolate.
The store carries milk chocolate and other tempting flavors, truffles and more.

Notes: While this petite bar weighs in at 1.5 ounces, it delivers a hefty dose of sensory pleasure. The 60% cocoa is infused with ground espresso beans for a robust, caffeinated burst of flavor.
Available at Andre’s and The Roasterie Café.
