ABOUT THE BAR
This intense 100% dark chocolate bar is not for the faint-hearted. Containing no sugar at all, it’s not the kind of chocolate you take a big bite out of! We think it’s a great way to show off the natural intensity and flavours present in cocoa.
Break off a small piece, let it melt and discover the smooth texture and roasted flavour notes of Dominican Republic cocoa.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Ama and Andy started Lucocoa in December 2014. Based in North London, there pair were the first bean-to-bar chocolate makers to launch in the capital. The idea was to create bars that were compatible with Ama’s loves of both chocolate and exercise. She came up with the tagline Not Naughty / Just Nice to express how Lucocoa’s bars are better for you but without compromising on flavour. Rather than using refined sugar, Lucocoa sweeten all the their bars with just coconut sugar and Lucuma powder (hence the name). Lucuma is a subtropical fruit, native to the Andean valleys of Peru, Ecuador and Chile. The dry yellow flesh has a unique sweet taste that is often compared to sweet potato or maple. When dried, this so-called superfood can be used as a natural sweetener, adding an unusual flavour dimension to Lucocoa’s bars.
