Solkiki – Gran Nativo, 63% Coconut Dark Mylk
Out of stock
Iris and Bob make unusual chocolate – it’s all vegan (including their milks and white chocolate bars). And they also have unusual background for chocolate makers. Iris has a masters in Clinical Psychology and Bob has degrees in Human-Computer Interaction and Business Law and toured the world directing and producing videogames.
As chocolate loving vegans they were distressed by the lack of good vegan and milk chocolate, so way back in 2008 they decided to start making their own craft chocolate. Initially they made stoneground vegan chocolate when they were living in Canada for a few years. Relocating back to the UK, they bought a cottage in Devon along with a Cocoa Grinder and started experimenting with different cacao beans and different recipes.
This bar is also unusual — even for Bob and Iris. Most mass market milk chocolates contain 20-25% cocoa solids. Most craft chocolate makers will use above 40% cocoa for their chocolate bar, and are experimenting with “dark milks” where the bar contains over 50% cocoa. Bob and Iris for this bar have gone “very dark milk” with 63% cocoa content. And to make it even more special, and suitable for vegans, the milk used here is coconut milk.
The beans here are from Northern Peru and of a type called “Gran Nativo Blanco” because when they are cut open, they are often white.
The texture of this bar is a little fudgey and sticky. It has flavour notes of pineapple, cherry and some lime citrus notes
The bar is a Silver award winner of the International Chocolate Awards 2017, European Competition (Category: Dark Milk Chocolate Bar, Microbatch) and also won Double Gold Star in the 2017 Great Taste awards
