ABOUT THE BAR
A smooth and rich dark chocolate bar packed with so much nuttiness and cream, you would think they were added! Always thinking about the environment, Bare Bones’ chocolate boxes are made from recycled paper coffee cups, making it recyclable, and the inside chocolate wrapper is formed from plants, making it compostable.
“I’m not great at describing food in a fancy manner. But if the most perfect day, the sort of day you don’t plan but where everyone you see says good morning to you and is nice, and everything you went out for you find, and the sun shines, but not so much it makes you sweat like a teenage boy on a first date, and the flowers are out and you catch sight of your reflection in a window and you look better than you thought and you smile all day and life feels full of promise and dazzle. If that sort of day were a chocolate bar, then it would be this“.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Bare Bones Chocolate was founded in Glasgow in 2018 by Lara and Cameron, two craft chocolate lovers who decided to try their hand making their own. The results speak for themselves! Multiple successes at the International Chocolate Awards and Great Taste Awards have followed, and their beautiful packaging, made from recycled paper coffee cups and repurposed food waste, highlights their commitment to great taste while protecting the planet and its people.
ABOUT THE BEANS
The beans for this bar were sourced from the Paquibato Co-operative in the southern Philippines, right next to Mount Apo National Park. After cultivation, a selection of five Trinitario bean types are fermented and dried in central fermentation centers. This profile won a Cocoa of Excellence award in 2019 for its nutty tones with hints of yellow fruits and tropical fruits.
