Product Description

Cocoa grower Bertil Åkesson’s father was a Swedish diplomat in Paris before starting a trading company and traveling the world. The family eventually settled in Madagascar in the 1970s and took over various plantations on the island.

Today, the Åkesson family owns cocoa plantations in Brazil and Bali and Madagascar, where they also grow the a variety of peppers. This bar is flavoured with pink peppercorns which add subtle flavour to the fruity and tart Madagascan Trinitario cocoa more than they add heat. It’s an exotic, warming chocolate experience that we think everyone should try.

    I didn’t think much of this bar when I first tried it, the pepperiness was too abrasive for me, attacking the chocolate and hiding its flavours. After a few more tastes the sweetness and fruitiness of the chocolate became more apparent, and is a balanced contrast to the pepper. Still, I believe the amount of pepper in this chocolate bar is too much, and also means there are many peppercorns to be discovered when tasting the chocolate, which personally isn’t very nice.
