Winner of the 2021 Academy of Chocolate Golden Bean Award

Before he turned his hand to crafting chocolate, Mark Schimmel was a talented pastry chef. He trained in top 3* Michelin kitchens before eventually becoming head pastry chef in a 2* Michelin restaurant in The Netherlands. It was during this time that Mark developed a real passion for chocolate. He loved working with it as an ingredient, and he wanted to learn more. He wanted to understand the story behind the chocolate that arrived in his kitchens, ready for him to melt down and craft into spectacular creations. He was eager to discover the role of origin, and to understand how even the smallest change to a recipe could dramatically alter the flavour of a finished chocolate.

For this bar, Mark has sourced Sierra Nevada cacao that grows in a “harmonious place” off the Caribbean coast of Colombia. To source these beans, Mark has worked with Uncommon Cacao. Uncommon Cacao work to build a more fair and sustainable cacao supply chain, and work directly with the farmers to drive maximum value at origin.

Tasting Notes

Fudgy, rich and spiced. Krak has crafted an incredibly moreish dark milk chocolate bar. It’s not too sweet and you can taste the delicate nuances of the cacao, from the almonds to nutmeg and cinnamon to the tropical fruits. This is a chocolate bar that keeps on giving on flavour.

But don’t just take our word for it! Have a look at what the attendees at one of our recent Virtual Tastings had to say about it:

  1. Chris E.

    The best! So tasty, full flavour, so rich I can’t eat the whole bar. Paper packaging so more environmentally friendly than the bars with plastic.

  2. Vicki S.

    OK, but nothing special. There are better ones to spend your money on.

  3. Ben S.

    Krak is an appropriate name for this – good luck putting it down once you’re tried it.

  4. Francois D.

    Rich and complex, truly among the best, incredible flavours.
