When Antidote founder Red Thalhammer was feeling down, she wished for a cure-all chocolate pill to ease her woes. Fortunately for us, she decided to make something of her own. She created Antidote as her line of “serious chocolate,” not in a somber way, but as a dedication to seriously quality products—with a little emphasis on the health benefits of chocolate. By mixing raw and roasted cacao, Antidote brings an innovative and flavorful palate to the table, and by keeping a low sugar content, the focus is all on the star ingredients.
What’s a playful chocoholic to do with a serious chocolate? Try the Big Kid line, of course. Antidote’s newest collection brings an accessible sophistication to the typically more junior choice: milk chocolate. Bars have all the creativity and impact you want from any chocolate, but also have a more mature feel than your standard drugstore milk chocolate. Antidote describes its Big Kid options as “low sugar, fuller flavor, for the kid in you.”
