Maker

François Pralus

François Pralus is a French chocolate maker has been making chocolate since 1991. He has one of the most diverse line of single origin bars. Each bar highlights the unique taste profile from each origin country, taking you on a flavor adventure from around the world. Pralus also owns a plantation in Madagascar, so they have direct control of the quality of the beans they choose and has mastered cultivating the reputable Criollo bean. As a Master Chocolate Maker, he is one of the few makers in France to manufacture his own chocolate. The name Pralus has been around for over half a century when his father Auguste Pralus made a prominent household name in the confection world. He opened a store in 1948 and has been recognized with many awards and merits. Since then Pralus has set the bar high for his sense of creativity and skilled chocolate making.

Cacao Region

Nosy Be, Madagascar

Nosy Be is a famous tourist destination off the northwest coast of Madagascar, near the famous cacao-growing region of Sambirano Valley. The name actually means "big island" in the Malagasy language, though its area is a mere 124 miles squared. Once a major location of plantation of sugarcane and production of its derived products (sugar and rum), the island's main activities are now tourism and the plantation of ylang-ylang (for the production of essential oils).

Cacao Estate

Pralus Estate

World-renowned chocolate maker François Pralus has had his own cacao plantation on Madagascar since 2000. The 17-hectare farm is located on the Malagasy island of Nosy-Be, to the north of the mainland. A few years after taking over the land, Pralus decided to plant 25,000 criollo variety cacao trees, as the plantation would be supplying his own bean to bar chocolate company. He chose Nosy-Be in particular because of its fragrant impression; the island’s nickname is actually ‘Perfume Island,’ because of all the ylang-ylang, vetiver, pepper, and vanilla plants that surround you there.

A hard no

On a quest to find the tastiest 100%… and this is definitely not it. I was really, really surprised to discover this after reading all the rave reviews prior to ordering it.

Did a side-by-side taste test between the Pralus and the Bonnat, which won unanimously. A few specifics: The Pralus had a slightly bitter aroma, although the taste wasn’t. The texture was smooth, I’ll give it that. But the taste (warning: I’m gonna go full on wine-tasting-snob with my description here) had strong notes of licorice, musk, and general inedibleness. Like, actually. Paired with a really yummy strawberry that drowned the Pralus out… okay, sure. But on its own, no one in the family’s interested in finishing this bar, especially now that the strawberries are gone :(

Rich and smooth

I really like the mouth-feel of this bar. I know that sounds silly but it is very enjoyable, not at all chalky. Rich flavor, not as complex as others but very very delicious.

Very Smooth and Soft

Every so often I get a couple more 100% cocoa bars to try and every time we find a new favorite. This one was mine. It is very different ... in a good way.
