Wild Ophelia

Top 10 Chocolate Bars

Wild Ophelia sources its all-natural ingredients from small farms across the USA



A pioneer in experimental chocolate who trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, chocolatier Katrina Markoff cemented her culinary wunderkind status when she launched her Vosges Haut-Chocolat line. When we heard she was debuting Wild Ophelia, an American-inspired “sister” line to Vosges, we were excited to try it for ourselves.

Intended as an “American road trip through chocolate,”
Wild Ophelia aims to connect the American farmers’ movement with chocolate. The 41 percent cacao milk chocolate bars feature all-natural ingredients such as New Mexican pecans, California almonds and Michigan cherries sourced directly from small farms across the USA.

Markoff first gained fame with off-beat creations like the Mo's Bacon Bar, so it’s no surprise that Wild Ophelia features unexpected flavors such as BBQ Potato Chips, Beef Jerky and Peanut Butter & Banana. Wild Ophelia is available nationwide at Walgreens, Target and Whole Foods.

Our pick: Peanut Butter & Banana bar ($5 for 57g)
