When Peruvian beans are at the heart of such fantastic chocolate, it explains why ‘National Cocoa Day’ is now celebrated each year in Peru. This deeply chocolatey bar is yet another wonderful arrival from French chocolate maker Francois Pralus. The initial chocolate hit gives way to soaring floral notes and hints of spice. When combined with the buttery, almost creamy texture that we’ve come to love from Pralus, this is a bar we found incredibly hard to put down.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Pralus has been making patisserie and baked treats in Roanne, France, since 1948. Auguste Pralus quickly became famous for his Praluline, a gorgeous brioche packed with rose-sugar-coated pieces of almonds and hazelnuts. Auguste’s son François is now at the helm, and Pralus has become famous the world over for its fabulous chocolate. François is a master chocolate maker – he’s always on the lookout for new cocoa beans and has recently bought his own farm on the Madagascan island of Nosy Be.
