The flavour profile of this 70% dark chocolate is bright, fruity, citrus and intense, just as fine Madagascan chocolate is known to be. It has a great snap, with a clean melt and pristine finish.
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.
This bar is made from beans grown on Bertil Akesson’s cacao plantation in Madagascar. Bertil’s beans are widely used amongst craft chocolate makers, who seek the finest cocoa beans to craft their chocolate.
