Noka Chocolate Controversy
We mentioned Noka Chocolates once before here on Luxist and, unfortunately, it looks as though we fell victim to their crafty marketing, as have so many other publications. They sell the most expensive chocolate in the world, with prices up to $2,080 per pound, but as we have now learned, thanks to an outstanding in-depth investigation of the chocolatier by Dallas Food, price isn't everything.
Many chocolatiers use chocolates fro other sources and Noka is no exception, although they, unlike every other high-end chocolatier, seem to be willing to go to any lengths to hide the fact and protect their markup. If you want to try their the single-origin chocolates that are their claim to fame, go directly to the source and buy Bonnat Chocolate direct. Then, head over to Dallas Food's expose to find out how they discovered the world's most expensive chocolate really shouldn't be.
