Komforte Chockolates Tasting

With flavors like tortilla, lime and salt, and apple pie and graham cracker, Komforte Chockolates had our attention. Based in the Pacific Northwest, Komforte Chockolates seem to promise a chocolate bar reminiscent of a cozy Seattle afternoon looking out a rain-streaked window at a grey sky. Decidedly west coast in aesthetic and sentiment, Komforte has potential, but does not fully deliver on their promise.

The Meadow, a pretty neighborhood shop in the West Village, is the only source for Komforte in the city. They sell an unusual variety of goods ranging from chocolate, flowers, and bitters, to every kind of culinary salt under the sun.

The Komforte bars we selected were French toast, apple pie and graham cracker, and tortilla lime and salt. Alas, we missed the ramen noodle bar.
