    So shipping cacao from the other side of the world, and she take off the goodies (tanins/phytonutrients and fibers) and add unhealthy stuff (maillard reaction, sugar, roasted saturated fat), nothing is done about the cadmium in cacao( plus its own saturated and light oxalate content). Finaly, the dirty part is uselessly feeding the suffering, environmental disaster and public health problem of dairy industry with its milk powder that was not unhealthy enough so it deserved more maillard reaction, dairy that already known hinder benefits of some phytonutrients. All these to feed the rich but thanksfully she seems to pay fairly the farmer.
    The chocolate better be way way way tastier than a simpler version of this chocolate.

    Other Chocolatiers: We make our chocolate using age old tradition and passion.
    This woman: We use airo-synthesization in order to excite the atoms in the molecules of the cacao so that it undergoes polymorphic-crystalisis which will alter it's texture.
