Cherry and Almond Stone-Ground Chocolate

MADE BY CHOCOVIVO IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

MOUTH SAYS...

If you've always been the type to buy trail mix and proceed to eat basically just the chocolate pieces, this is the bar for you. Why not turn things around and put the trail mix inside the chocolate? This bar is just that.

The rustic texture of stoneground chocolate is the perfect foil for sweet cherry juice, chunks of almond and a subtle hint of spicy black peppercorn. The peppercorns are stoneground into the chocolate, forming the perfect crunchy backdrop and a refreshing "minty" taste. 

This bar is made with pesticide-free beans sourced from a single plantation in Tebasco, Mexico. They're fermented for two or three days, sun-dried, lightly roasted and stone-ground with no additional cocoa butter or additives. The bars are cooled in sheet pans and cut by hand, so you'll find several slabs in each package, with no two exactly alike.

Tip of the Tongue

Break this bar up and throw it on your favorite cherry ice cream. Now we're talkin'.
