"When planning this bar, I reached out to my good friend Mark Bitterman (of Bitterman Salts). He is a great guy and perhaps the country's leading expert on exotic salts. We chose this beautiful Japanese sea salt that is hand made from ocean water pumped from the ocean's depths where the sea water is ultra pure. The cocoa we use to make the milk chocolate comes from Ocumare, Venezuela (one of my favorites) and the nibs are made with cocoa from Ecuador. You will love this very special milk chocolate." - Art Pollard, Founder & Chocolate Maker

Amano is a small batch chocolate producer located in Orem, Utah. The founder Art Pollard seeks out unusual cacao beans, buying them directly from farms, and sometimes even working with the farmers to improve fermentation and drying. First hand control over the process ensures the best quality cacao to make the best chocolate possible. Amano has won many awards including International Chocolate Awards, Good Food Awards, London Academy of Chocolate, and more. When Pollard decided he wanted to tackle the world of chocolate making, many people didn’t think it was possible. Amano has proven their dedication, by creating their own machines from scratch, and learning everything there is to learn about chocolate.
