This Academy of Chocolate GOLD award-winning 60% dark milk chocolate is thick in texture, with a fruity complex flavour. It’s an incredibly interesting milk chocolate bar, with little bitterness and lots of creaminess. Fredrik has coaxed out the awesome fruity and citrus notes of the Madagascan cacao.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Standout Chocolate launched onto the craft chocolate scene as a one-man-band in 2018. Fredrik Martinsson, Standout’s founder, has a background in engineering and specialty coffee, and he uses that experience and skillset to craft his award-winning chocolate in Kållered, Sweden. He sources his cocoa beans directly from co-operatives and farmers all over the world, aiming to create “a better world, through social, environmental and economic sustainability for the farmers.”
The beans in this bar are sourced from Bertil Akesson’s estate in Madagascar. Bertil’s beans are famous throughout the craft chocolate world, having produced countless award-winning bars and winning many awards themselves. They typically lend their bars a fruity flavour profile, and it’s an endless source of enjoyment for us to see all the new ways makers find to bring out their very best.

We tried this recently and were blown away. It’s the best of both milk and dark – not sickly sweet but not eye-waveringly bitter.

Gorgeous creamy texture. Quite smoky.
