Bean to Bar

Bean to Bar

Direct-Source Cacao

Direct Sourced

These beans come from the Akesson farm in Madagascar that Cam and Alice visited at the end of 2011. Bertil, the farm's owner, dries these beans for them with a special method that retains the acidity, resulting in a strong, fruity punch. People often ask how they add fruit flavors to the bar and they explain that these are actually the unique characteristics of the bean coming through. Every harvest brings new flavors and this year they taste strawberries, hints of raspberry jam, and a bright, citrusy finish.

One of my all-time favorite bars!

All of Dandelions chocolate bars are delectable... rich in layers of flavor and fine processing. Smooth on the palette without adding cocoa butter. This Madagascar bar has a divine rich fruitiness to it. Even just eating a tiny amount and letting it melt on your tongue, you’ll find the flavors bursting forth. If you like fruity notes in your chocolate bar, this one is a must try!
