DESCRIPTION:

From Fu Wan chocolate comes a new chocolate bar with a experiment in texture, fermentation and roasting. This is a rough ground bar with a double fermentation and one of the most interesting notes we have come across with chocolate.

The bar is a surprisingly light color brown for a 70% dark bar. You get an aroma of pineapple and a soft floral sweet fragrance. Flavor notes of gold raspberries, and champagne like flavors. Not surprising given the unique double fermentation method which is also used in champagne production.

Taiwan is a small producer of fine cacao with a very unique tasting profile.

Ingredients: Cacao Bean, Sugar, Cacao Butter.

May contain traces of nuts and peanuts.

Fu Wan Chocolate

Fu Wan Chocolate (or FuWan) is a tree and bean to bar chocolate maker from Taiwan. They make chocolates from natively grown Taiwanese cocoa and from other fine cocoa bean sources from around the world. In 2011, Fu Wan originally started a resort, Warren Hsu, the executive chef at the resort wanted to provide the best local cuisine to its guests. One day he met a cacao farmer while Hsu was sourcing local ingredients and was introduced to cacao, and Hsu was immediately inspired by real tasting chocolate! With the cacao industry being relatively young, most of the cacao is being exported, making Fu Wan one of the very few makers handcrafting bean to bar chocolate with local cacao beans. Hsu has trained with bean to bar makers to share his journey of flavors through his chocolate bars. Fu Wan also believes in an eco-friendly approach. They take emptied out cacao pods, which are considered a waste product and convert them into cacao syrup. They also product cacao tea and even in the works of producing cacao paper. Warren came up with the name Fu Wan because Fu meaning fortune, blessings and happiness, and Wan means bay. Fu Wan is located near a national scenic area, hence they are from a bay full of fortune, blessings and happiness!

Mmmmm... if you like nibs

Nibs Nibs Nibs! If you like the taste of nibs, you will likely love this bar. As advertised, this bar has a rough grind. While definitely rough, it isn't dry and gritty like some. It's as if you are eating partially processed chocolate as it tastes like half chocolate half smoothly chopped up nibs. I like the taste of the chocolate a lot. It is bright and fruity and chocolatey - tastes on the milkier side of chocolate. The double ferment makes it quite sweet with fruity tones - like figs, raisins etc. Definitely recommend for those wanting to try unique chocolates, but this wouldn't be my go to bar for every day dark chocolate.

Fu Wan Taiwan #9 Double Ferment 70%

It is a particular bar but I enjoyed the tasting experience. Indeed the balsamic notes remind me a bit Qantu Tresor Cache. Anyways, the combo of balsamic and strawberries with champagne is very popular in my home country. So I am used to it. But I appreciate some differentiation in terms of nuts and apple. Sometimes we should look at some bars as experimentation. We are tasting what it seems a unique method and understanding the result. It is not always a matter of "like or dislike" but learning.

Very unique bar

Smooth melt, very fruity. I've never had a bar that tastes like this before - I agree with the balsamic notes. Probably the first double ferment I've had.

Very unique

Strong balsamic aroma. Champagne and strawberry notes. Grainy texture. Very unique, but a bit pricey.

Sad I couldn't love it

I really really loved the other Ping Tung bar. So many interesting nuances. So I was so sad that I didn't have the same experience with the Double Ferment. It was just too sour. I did get the balsamic flavor, but then the sourness interrupted it. The grittiness didn't please me, but the softness did. I'm going to keep trying the other bars though! I appreciate the uniqueness of this cocoa maker! The flavor profiles made me rethink what to expect from chocolate.
