Description

Unfortunately this bar is no longer available in our Library. Please see below for four bars that we think you will enjoy.

PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for a taster bar. 

This delicious 63% dark chocolate is flavoured with pink pepper and combava, a citrus fruit similar to lime, that perfectly complement the natural fruity notes characteristic of Madagascan cacao. Look out for an intensely floral and subtly spicy flavour with notes of rose and lemongrass.

This bar doesn’t just taste good, it does good. Madagascan chocolate maker Menakao proudly crafts its chocolate on the island, using only local ingredients. Unfortunately, this is rare even for craft chocolate – it’s estimated that less than 5% of the world’s chocolate is produced in the same country the cocoa is grown. By making the chocolate in Madagascar in addition to growing the cacao on the island, Menakao generate about 4-5 times the benefit of Fair Trade for the local Madagascan economy.

In honour of the men and women of Madagascar of all ethnicities who are at the heart of Menakao chocolate, Menakao decided that the bars should proudly bear the image “not [of] the face of Madagascar, but [of] Madagascan faces.” The beautiful image on the wrapping of this bar is of a Betsimisaraka woman. The Betsimisarka (Betsimisaraka meaning “many and inseparable”), are celebrated for their rhythmic dancing traditions and are the largest group on the east coast of Madagascar, a region noted for lush vegetation, dense forest and tropical climate.
