Hogarth – Gran Blanco, Peru 66% Dark with Manuka Honey
Sweet honey, fruity chocolate, crunchy nibs… What’s not to like?
The delectably sweet honey combines perfectly with this fruity Peruvian bean. You’re not overwhelmed by the sweetness, though, as bitter, crunchy cocoa nibs have been added for great balance.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Karl Hogarth began a nautical career as a 15-year-old deck boy before becoming captain and moving into the gas and oil industry. He discovered chocolate in Guatemala, and was amazed at the variety of flavours he encountered. He soon decided to make his own chocolate in his shed and sell it at the local farmers’ market in Nelson, New Zealand, where he lives with his wife, Marina. He was amazed at the reception, and Hogarth Chocolate was born. Now popular around the world, Karl and Marina love experimenting with new flavour combinations, which they continue to try out at the Nelson farmers’ market every Saturday morning.
These Gran Nativo Blanco beans were sourced from the Piura Valley of northern Peru. Rediscovered in 2008, the varietal was reintroduced to the region with the help of the Norandino Cooperative, founded in 1995 and now serving over 7,000 smallholder cocoa, coffee, and sugar farmers.
And the honey in this bar comes from the beautifully named You’re A Honey. Their bees forage amongst native Manuka in the western ranges of Nelson, New Zealand, producing honey with an incredible flavour due to the whopping 83% pollen count.

The honey comes through very strongly here. I like it -- I think it's interesting, and the cocoa nibs keep it from being too sweet. But it is just on the edge of being overwhelming.

A true surprise, which somehow tastes more like honey than it does chocolate! It's a very strong and intense flavour, but worth a try for something a bit different.

A very sweet chocolate - too much for me with the combination of honey and cocoa
