"Ok just watched it. Pure hype. He deferred to his website constantly. Its marketing garbage. Watch his eyes; even he doesn't believe the horse shit he is spewing."

"To'ak Chocolate founder Jerry Toth was on a news segment debuting his $260 bars. http://www.wciu.com/videos/youandme/-260-chocolate-bars As is typical, the news hosts seemed to know very little about artisan chocolate. The host on the left took…"

" this is a travesty. It in no way defines the concept of a 100$ chocolate bar. This is pure unadulterated marketing. plain and simple. while they will certainly sell every bar they have, only a fool would believe they made 1 batch of 28 kilos.…"

Gap replied to Scott's discussion Toak Chocolate - $260 per 50 gram bar
"The (second) article you link to says a 50 ounce bar but it looks a little small for that in the photos. Undeniably expensive either way, but I was wondering if you had tracked down something else which indicated to you the bar was 50g?"

Toak Chocolate - $260 per 50 gram bar

Clay called for the $100 chocolate bar.  The good folks behind Toak Chocolate answered the call with enthusiasm.  Rare and secret Ecuadorian cacao, so delicately flavored that one must handle it with tweezers made of Spanish elm to avoid commingling its aroma with that of the oils from one's skin. ScottSee More

Scott replied to Scott's discussion "Whole Bean Chocolate"
"Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it, Clay. Another point with regard to sweetness.  He's probably counting shell (erroneously) as a cocoa solid.  Assuming 13% shell content, that means that the actual cocoa solids from mass are…"
