Underneath the simple, understated packaging of this bar, you’ll find some truly exciting Madagascan chocolate that shows of the rich flavour notes the island is famous for. The bar has a slightly peppery aroma, however once tasted, the flavour develops into hints of forest fruits and raisins. Alongside this, we detected a mild spice and flavour notes of balsamic vinegar.
This is an extremely smooth bar, and carries all the notes typical to a Madagascan bar, and more. A must try bar!
Most of the cocoa grown in Africa is exported once its been fermented and dried. Chocolat Madagascar is one of relatively few companies that both grow cocoa and make chocolate bars in Madagascar. Doing this injects both skills and investment into the local communities. Chocolat Madagascar was one of the first to produce chocolate in this way. The Company has been making chocolate from local Malagasy cocoa beans since 1940 working closely with local farmers. Indeed, its bars have been sold locally for many years, but until now – it has not been easily available outside of this African island nation.
