Is $260 too much for a chocolate bar? Small batch To’Ak Chocolate owner Jeremy Toth doesn’t think so. As reported by CNN, Toth harvests a very specific and rare cacao seed, ferments them, grinds them and turns them into liquid chocolate. Each bar is packaged in a box made from the same wood that he uses to ferment the seeds. The box is packed with tongs for the bar so that oils from your fingers don’t degrade the chocolate.
With such a long process, you can only imagine how few bars he’s able to produce each year. He looks to make 1500 bars this year and 10,000 by 2018. Is this chocolate bar worth $260? Try it for yourself and let us know.
