Grass-fed collagen?  I didn't even know collagen could eat!

Kevadu stole my comment. :P

I'm more curious why Mesh is so negative on this.

My guess is because he's a strict vegetarian and collagen is found in animal connective tissue to make gelatin.  Basically, gelatin mostly comes from boiling down animal bones and stuff.  Ergo, this is chocolate neither he nor I can eat, and it makes all the "this free, that free" labels invalid, because it has dead animals in it.  

Yes, the Jell-o you enjoyed as a kid was made using animal gelatin from boiled down livestock bones.  The popular belief is that it's made from cow and horse hooves, but those don't contain enough gelatin to make Jell-o.  

I also avoid Caesar salad unless the dressing is on the side, because Caesar dressing has anchovy paste in it.

It's mostly that it's sticking collagen in chocolate for no good reason except to (ostensibly?) appeal to the paleo kiddies and the end results sounds really gross.

Also I'd imagine that dumping what is essentially gelatin into a chocolate bar would completely !@#% the texture up.

ALSO the whole nongmo + paleo thing usually has this whole FOOD AS NATURE INTENDED vibe and it's like I'm pretty goshdang sure that if nature intended for chocolate to have connective tissue in it, it wouldn't come from trees.

Basically it's just a mess of food fadishness creating a worthless product also I'm sure it's expensive.

ALSO it's not specifying WHAT the collagen is from, just that it's grass fed. Which is creepy.

-- edit --

Okay to further clarify, this is the ingredients list:

Other Ingredients: Almonds, pumpkin seeds, grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen, isomaltooligosaccharide (cassava root), water, coconut flakes, honey, natural flavors, coconut oil, bitter chocolate, cocoa powder, cocoa nibs, himalayan pink salt, monk fruit extract, tocopherols.

So basically the chocolate itself is towards the end of the ingredient list, they use coconut oil instead of cocoa butter, "natural flavors", why is water in there, why is cassava root in there, etc.

What you're looking at is, essentially, a damp, salty mass of chocolate-flavored tapioca and rawhide, with some pumpkin seeds sewn indiscriminately therewithins.

This is a travesty.

Well, most chocolate is normally emulsified with soy lecithin, which they couldn't use for this soy-free paleo chocolate.  And since meat is not only acceptable in the paleo diet, but encouraged, they went with an animal based emulsifier instead.  Makes perfect sense to me.

Also, collagen is insanely good for you.

Speaking of history repeating, the G1--the first ever Android phone--released back in 2008 did the same exact thing and everyone hated it for it.  It's funny watching Apple fans trip over themselves trying to explain how this is a feature now...
