Holy Wood Chocolate BarMADE BY COCANU IN PORTLAND, OREGON
That's right, you read correctly. WOOD. This delicious and unusual chocolate bar is flavored with Palo Santo wood from Ecuador so venerated for its aromatic quality that it's considered holy.
The wood is blended into 68% dark chocolate made with wild cacao from the Bolivian Amazon. This bar is like nothing you have ever tasted, but once you've tasted it, it all makes sense.
Normally we're not in favor of judging a book by its cover – but luckily, these magnificent bars taste as good as they look. Each comes enclosed in a sturdy paper envelope sealed with a wax fleur de lys. Edible love letters, they're made all the more poetic by evocative titles.
Tip of the Tongue
This is total bragging rights chocolate for the veteran chocoholic or bonafide foodie. "Yeah, but have you ever eaten wood chocolate?" Great as a conversation starter for your next visit, dinner or third date.
