ORIGINAL BEANS

ESMERALDAS MILK

 

Not only does this milk chocolate taste great, by eating it you’re actually doing good too! Original Beans plants a tree in the rainforest for every single bar they sell. The sweet and creamy bar has a subtle fruity note. An added touch of sea salt lifts this milk chocolate bar’s flavour and makes it almost impossible to put down.

AKESSON’S

BRAZIL DARK MILK

 

This particular chocolate bar from Akesson’s bar is a dark milk chocolate, which means it has a much higher cocoa content than your average milk chocolate. The result is a buttery bar with deep chocolatey flavour notes, as well as hints of dried fruits and a toasted malt nose. The cocoa beans come from Bertil Akesson’s own farm in the Bahia province of Brazil.

FRUITION

BROWN BUTTER MILK

 

Handcrafted in upstate New York, Fruition’s milk chocolate uses browned butter from a local dairy which gives a wonderfully rich caramel note. The Dominican beans also lend the sweet bar a touch of citrus. It took Bryan from Fruition over 6 months to perfect this recipe and we’re sure you’ll agree it was well-worth the wait.
