Marou Chocolate

Marou Chocolat was started by two Frenchmen Samuel Maruta and Vincent Mourou in Saigon. After a camping trip in Vietnam, that left them venturing onto a cacao farm, they were sold on their next adventure, chocolate. They only had minimal everyday kitchen appliances at the time and started testing how to make chocolate in Sam’s kitchen. They work closely with farmers and slow roast the beans in small batches to get the natural flavors from its terroir and let it do all the work. They are the first bean to bar Vietnamese chocolate makers. Their bars captivate flavors from each region they receive their cacao beans from.

Cacao Region

Ba Ria, Vietnam

Ba Ria is a small coastal province in southeastern Vietnam. The Province has a tropical monsoon climate with 2 distinct seasons: rainy and dry. But despite being largely rural, the province's most important industries are petroleum and electricity generation; its contributions amount to nearly a quarter of the country's annual budget. Living standards in the region are high, so agriculture is only a small part of its economy, but its history with cacao is notable, as it's the location of Vietnam's cacao revival back in the early 2000's.

Rich and creamy, not overpowering

I was a little hesitant to try this bar since my experience with over 70% is that the chocolate is overpowering. NOT this bar! It is so rich and creamy. I think it is a new favorite and the best bar from Vietnam I have tried. I now have a number of this bar in my stash.

Don't let the higher percentage scare you. This bar is luxurious and smooth. Delicious!

Some of the best dark chocolate in the world

We first found this chocolate on a trip to Saigon. Marou has a couple of shops in Vietnam and it is a must visit. I noticed on the show Somebody Feed Phil that he goes to the shop and tastes all the wonderful chocolate, pastries and hot chocolate. It is one of our favorite dark chocolate bars of all time.

very special

This bar is different and exceptional. I can't quite make up my mind if 5 stars are justified. I will try others in their selection. Strong fruit notes. That the chocolate is manufactured in the country of origin makes it special as well.
