A creamy, tangy bar with a unique flavor. I agree with the label tasting notes of cashew and bergamot. Glad I tried this one.
Fruition's bars always stand out to me for their excellent texture - the perfect way the bars melt in your mouth with their cocoa-butter-forward texture. The melt is perfect due to the relative thinness of the bars (they are the perfect thickness) and the high quality ingredients. This is an exceptionally-flavored bar from Fruition, with deep and complex cocoa flavors revealed after the perfect melt. No particular notes stand out to me in this bar - just a well-rounded, excellent bar.
The smooth and creamy flavor is this bar stands out. Perfect sweetness!
I normally don’t go for milk chocolates, but I wanted to give this a try and I’m glad that I did. It’s delicious! It’s very smooth with a bright, fresh, and fruity start and a deep chocolate finish. It’s tough to just eat one piece!

Collection title: Fortunato
Collection description: The name “Fortunato” has become rather famous in the fine chocolate world, now associated with the internationally-recognized Peruvian nacional cacao varietal. But did you know that Fortunato isn’t a cacao varietal, but a name? Don Fortunato (Spanish for ‘Mr. Fortunato’) is the cacao farmer on whose land this nacional cacao strain was re-discovered, in northern Peru’s Marañón Canyon. Don Fortunato and his wife participate in each harvest and, using machetes, open pods and assist in removing the beans. Sealed buckets with wet cacao beans are then transported by donkey from the farm to the family home, weighed, and immediately paid for; the beans begin fermentation the same day. Because only a very small amount of this cacao is harvested each year, makers treat this holy grail of cacao with a commensurately high amount of care & respect.

Collection title: Marañon
Collection description: Marañon is one of those ten evolutionarily unique types identified in 2008, using samples collected throughout the Americas over the previous century. Samples proven to be part of the marañon cluster were found in northern Peru and western Brazil, so named after northern Peru’s Marañon River, along which most of the cluster’s samples were collected. Note that marañon is NOT the same as the nacional cluster, which is native to an overlapping region of the Peruvian Upper Amazon, but genetically distinct.
Collection title: Marañón Canyon, Peru
Collection description: The Marañón River is the mainstem source of the Amazon River, flowing through a deeply-eroded Andean valley called the Marañón Canyon, also known as Marañón River Valley. Northern Peru’s famous nacional bean was rediscovered in this area many years ago, a finding which has since brought incredible fame to the Don Fortunato Farm, as well as the entire region’s cacao (no matter the varietal). The Marañon River is the second-longest river in Peru.
