This smooth, velvety 70% dark chocolate has a fantastically long melt. With hints of stone fruit and strawberries at the beginning, this buttery bar ends on a lengthy sherbet note.


Born from a true passion to transform the Ukrainian chocolate industry, Stranger Chocolate was founded in late 2016 by designers Ruslan and Tetyana. Their mission: for people to enjoy the unique flavours of cocoa beans from around the world, without the use of slave or child labour through the cultivating process. Although Stranger has already racked up two Silver Awards and two Bronze Awards in the International Chocolate Awards 2021-22, what really makes them stand out is their sheer strength and endurance – Ruslan and Tetyana are still making chocolate in Ukraine with the help of their children, Anya and Matvii, despite the war knocking on their front doorstep.


The 200 hectares surrounding Lake Lachua, Guatemala, are home to the Q’eqchi’ Maya, who rely on the traditional cultivation of cocoa, honey, cardamom, and corn for their livelihoods. They have partnered with Cacao Verapaz, the Guatemalan division of Uncommon Cacao, to centrally ferment and export their high-quality, fine-flavour beans to the international market.

    This bar divided our dinner party. While every single person liked the Tanzania bar made by Stranger, only two people liked this bar. The flavor started with Jasmine and floral notes. And then for me, it got really smoky. My 13 year old tasted Oat Milk as did another guest at the party. My husband thought it tasted like spoiled milk.
    My 13 year old loved this bar. Another guest liked this bar. But the rest of us did not because the rest of us do not like floral, Jasmin, smoky notes.
    We all taste differently. This bar showcases that. The Standout Lachua bar is also a bit floral but not as strong as this one. I prefer the Stand Out Lachua but I think the terrior does lend itself to Floral, which is not my preferred flavor notes in chocolate.
