Maker

Fjåk Chocolate

Fjåk Chocolate, Norway’s first bean to bar chocolate maker! Fjåk focuses on ethically traded, organic cacao beans while using fresh ingredients inspired by their surrounding Nordic nature. Starting the chocolate journey in 2015, owners Agur and Siv spent two years experimenting and perfecting their chocolate. Fjåk was officially launched in 2017 and already won multiple awards by 2018. The name Fjåk comes from the Hardanger dialect, where people in the region would refer to each other as fjåk. It roughly translates to ‘loveable’ or ‘honest’ and well chocolate is the most loveable thing in the world!

Cacao Region

Acul Du Nord, Haiti

Acul-du-Nord is an arrondissement in the Nord Department of Haiti, a Caribbean nation which shares an island with the Dominican Republic. In terms of economic and financial infrastructure, the region is rather thinly equipped; most residents depend upon agriculture as their main source of livelihood. Common crops in Acul-du-Nord are coffee, rice, and a variety of tropical fruits, though it’s also become common to practice beekeeping & honey harvesting. The central cacao fermentary run by Produits Des Iles SA (PISA) has been a game-changer for the quality of cacao coming out of this region.

Cacao Estate

PISA

Produits Des Iles SA (PISA) is one of the few groups in Haiti working to export single-origin Haitian cacao, a battle they’ve been taking on since their inception in 2012. Prior to PISA’s establishment, basically all Haitian cacao was sold in the commodity market at dirt-cheap prices, despite the fact that neighboring Dominican Republic’s industry was booming. So the group decided to take on the task themselves, buying wet cacao from local farmers and processing it centrally in a northern facility. PISA’s beans are described by importer Uncommon Cacao as the “perfect storm of chocolate, caramelized sugars, and juicy dark berries,” and we couldn’t agree more. While makers’ choices play a large role in the final flavor, these notes are steadfast and hard to ignore. All PISA cacao is certified organic.

There is a reason this bar has won so many awards. The flavor is amazing. The melt is creamy and fudgy. Just be careful or you may eat the whole bar in one sitting!

SO good!!!!!

This chocolate is ridiculously good. The brown cheese is a little crunchy and a little salty, but it’s not overpowering. It just makes this chocolate taste incredibly interesting. I tried four of Fjak’s chocolates so far, and this was my favorite (the carrot cake white chocolate was a close second).

Such a subtle flavor

I was apprehensive about this bar because chocolate and cheese sounded odd to me, but I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. The hint of goat cheese rounds off the edge and gives the chocolate a deep flavor. The texture of this bar is also something special--creamy, smooth. I would buy it again.

This #norwegianmade bar is incredibly savory, creamy and smooth 🤤 You can smell and taste subtle notes of the goat milk funk, with something akin to caramel (that famous *brown cheese! 🧀🤔)

The texture is crazy fun too, since once you let it soften on your tongue, it has a fudgey consistency, with detectable flakes of sea salt. I plan to give some to my in-laws to taste, since they notoriously do not care for goat milk--I think this could convert them!

*😯 Brown cheese technically isn't cheese at all! The water from whey of goat's milk is boiled down until the sugars caramelize. The caramel-like goop is cooled until you get a nice block of brown 'cheese'. It's a versatile favorite of Norway in both sweet and savory applications. In my limited experience with it, chocolate is a fabulously delicious application 😍

Deep and different :)

well, for a milk choco lover like me...this was a dandy and fine flavor to bubble up from the creatively friendly lands of Norway. The milk choco has a smooth , rich taste and, when added to the brown goat cheese flavor (which is buttery, slightly salty and sweet), it literally becomes a warm sun bath inside the soul and mouth of the person eating it. I cant put it more simply than that. The brown goat cheese flavor is definitely NOT a strong /overbearing/pungent affair.....it is super mellow and just a hint more than subtle in it's offering :)
