  • Description

    This bar uses cocoa beans from Ben Tre, the southern coastal province of Vietnam’s Mekong Delta. The chocolate is made in Saigon by two French chocolate makers, Samuel Maruta and Vincent Mourou, with a small and dedicated local team who already make an award winner dark chocolate bar from Ben Tre and multiple other regions of Vietnam

    In 2015/6 after extensive requests, lobbying and indeed demands, Sam and Vincent, Marou’s founders (the name Marou is a combination of their family names) agreed to make a milk chocolate to complement their range of dark bars. Vietnam doesn’t have a large dairy tradition or history. But Vietnam does have a long history of coconut growing and harvesting, based around Ben Tre province.  And so they decided to craft a coconut milk craft chocolate bar which out of the blocks won multiple international awards and became a firm favourite

    To taste, we found the bar to have a deliciously rich and fugdy mouth feel. The coconut milk beautifully compliments the spicy flavour profile of the Ben Tre cocoa by adding a fruity layer with added notes of raisin.

      The chocolate sits in the tongue, and of a sudden there is an explosion of coconut flavour. Very morish.

      The coconut milk gives this bar a very creamy taste and makes it wonderfully unique. Very fine indeed.
