This dark milk chocolate is sweet, creamy, and intensely salted – the smoked profile of the salt adds a further umami taste. Boho’s Smoked Hickory Salt bar perfectly executes the “bliss point” formulation, as this is one truly delicious and more-ish chocolate.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Charlie Burke, the founder of BOHO, started his chocolate journey in the 1980s, when he opened a small chain of chocolate and confectionery shops in New England, USA. Having always wanted to craft their own chocolate, Charlie and his partner, Suzanne, set out in 2014 to learn how to make the very best bean-to-bar chocolate. They founded BOHO after a trip to South America with Taza Chocolate to visit farmers, cooperatives, and local chocolate makers. The name BOHO is short for Bohemian, which signifies their “organic, artistic, and independent approach to making quality chocolate.”
The beans in this bar have been sourced from Maya Mountain Cacao, one of the earliest centralized fermentery social enterprises. Established in 2010 in the early stages of the Craft Chocolate boom, Maya Mountain works with over 350 cocoa-growing families in southern Belize to process their beans centrally, which allows them to export high-quality cocoa beans to premium-paying craft chocolate makers.
