The flavour profile of this 70% dark chocolate is rich on the nuts, with a chocolatey-gianudja flavour and notes of banana. This bar has a fantastic snap and creamy melting texture.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Husband and wife Scott Query and DeAnn Wallin founded Solstice Chocolate in 2013, among the scenic vistas of Salt Lake City, Utah. Utah has recently been dubbed the craft chocolate capital of the States, and rightly so with its boom in makers and retailers of small-batch craft chocolate. Starting as a hobbyist before running Solstice as a business, DeAnn has always been fascinated by chocolate. Chocolate made its way into many of DeAnn’s family activities, from making chocolates as a child with her grandmother, to making chocolates as a mother with her daughters. Yet another example of chocolate finding wonderful ways to bring people together.
The beans in this bar were sourced from Bundibugyo, a district of western Uganda that borders the Semuliki National Park. Renowned for its cocoa production, the district also neighbours the Rwenzori Mountains, a diverse ecosystem that is legendary for holding the source of the Nile River.
