Desserts: Chocolate, Out of Hand

THCO

TCHO

Timothy Childs, founder and chief chocolate officer of TCHO Chocolate in San Francisco, recently stopped by the SAVEUR test kitchen to introduce us to his flavorful eating chocolates, made from beans sourced from various farms across the globe so that they'll attain particular flavor profiles. Labeling his various chocolates "nutty," "fruity," or "citrus," Childs wants to tell customers how his chocolates taste instead of just how much pure cocoa they contain. The chocolate-covered macadamia nuts and tiny, sweet pieces of dried mango were the perfect handheld snack for us in the office—some of us even left the attractive tins of nuts and fruit on our desks for all-day eating. Purchase his chocolates and learn more about TCHO's unique labeling, educational farming sessions, and passion for great chocolate at www.tcho.com. —Ben Mims, SAVEUR
