Well it looks like Whole Foods Market is getting more and more into dark chocolate. It is nice to see a food store getting into the popularity of dark chocolate. Just waiting for their to be a specialized section for chocolate bars from all around the world! Have a good one, Robert Noel Chocolate Consultant

I just had Choctal ice cream, and I have to say that it was a mind blowing experience! And I'm not even an ice cream eater, and I'm rarely eating any sweets. First off, this is ultra high quality ice cream. It takes the ice cream experience to a whole new level. Unlike Haagen Daz and other national brands that have substantially diluted their quality for profit, Choctal uses high concentrated single source chocolate in their chocolate ice creams, and multiple levels of concentration of vanilla in its vanilla ice creams. I did some research into this product, and found its website www.choctal.com. It turns out that its CEO, Marc Boatwright, travels to remote parts of the Costa Rican Rain Forest, Papua New Guinea, and other countries to look for the finest quality products. This company is very much into earth awareness, and assisting farms in third world countries. This is an absolute must for all chocolate lovers. Thank you Whole Foods for carrying this dreamy product!

Do you share the recipe for chocolate chews? I've tried a couple from various websites but they just aren't as ggod as yours!

@Karen Rawlins: We don't have national recipes -- each store and region have their own mix that suits their customers best. You'll need to check with your local store. Glad you like them!

I agree with Keila - Choctal is fantastic. Not all Whole Foods carry it, but PLEASE keep stocking it, Belmar and Cherry Creek!

Hey Kristin, Our bakery recipes vary from store to store. You can check in directly with the Bakery at your local store for complete nutritional information on the Chocolate Chewies.

I absolutely love your chocolate chewie cookies! Is it possible to get the nutritional information? I watch my caloric intake and would like to keep those in my nutrition plaln. They are the ones made with egg whites, cocoa, walnuts, and powdered sugar. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Crazy in love with chocolate chewies!

I love eating the cookies from your in-store bakery. However, I'm on Weight Watchers so I'm starting to track my food and calorie intake for health reasons. Can you tell me where I can find the calories, fat, fiber, protein and any other nutritional information for your chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies and vegan cookies? (I'm referring to the cookies that are baked in your stores and housed in the self-serve bakery shelves. Thanks! Regards, Donna
